A 46-year-old man has been charged with murder in the shooting deaths of three students in an apartment near the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus.
Police said "an ongoing neighbor dispute over parking" may have been a factor in the shootings Tuesday evening. The three victims were all shot in the head,sources told CNN affiliate WRAL.
The suspect, Craig Stephen Hicks, turned himself in to police later in the night and is being held in the Durham County Jail without bond. He was cooperating with investigators, police said Wednesday morning.
"Our investigators are exploring what could have motivated Mr. Hicks to commit such a senseless and tragic act. We understand the concerns about the possibility that this was hate-motivated and we will exhaust every lead to determine if that is the case," said Chapel Hill Police Chief Chris Blue.
But given the victims' religion -- they were Muslims -- and comments the alleged shooter apparently left on a Facebook page, many social media users wondered what role, if any, the victims' faith played.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations called for police to "address speculation about a possible bias motive" and the Muslim Public Affairs Council is requesting a federal probe "if the motives of the shooter are confirmed based on his previous social media posts."
The victims were Deah Shaddy Barakat, 23, Yusor Mohammad, 21, and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, 19.

How would you comment this accident? As I see it white Americans are too upset by all the muslim community which is constantly increasing in the USA. Don't think so? How can you explain the fact that they are ready to kill them because of a perking place? No ideas?
PS: It is also another evidence that there is no defence against an angry gunman.
Unarmed muslims, you'd better look out!

Trying to understand why people commit urder is a waste of time. What difference does it make? People died. Are we to be less upset because they were or weren't Muslims? Because it was or wasn't a hate crime and not a parking dispute? What difference does any of that make? Someone murdered 3 other people.

Hang him. I'm not concerned with his motives.
