WINSTON-SALEM — A former Winston-Salem State University student accused of killing a 19-year-old man on the college campus Sunday morning was arrested in Charlotte on unrelated charges. 

The Winston-Salem Police Department subsequently charged Jarrett Jerome Moore, 21, with murder in the shooting death of Anthony White Jr., 19, and possession of weapons on school grounds, a news release from the Winston-Salem Police Department said. 

Police found White unresponsive in a campus parking lot after receiving reports of a campus shooting. Paramedics determine White was dead. 

Investigators found a second student shot and transferred him or her to a hospital with non life-threatening injuries. 

The Winston-Salem State University campus was on lock-down for more than three hours until officers determined there wasn't an active shooter on campus. 

On Monday, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department tried to serve warrants for Moore's arrest on an unrelated matter but he led officers on a short foot chase before they apprehended him, the release stated. 

Investigators said no other suspects are being sought in Sunday's shooting. 

Bail and a court date haven't been set for Moore. 

Officers are still gathering evidence and trying to talk with other witnesses who are asked to call the Winston-Salem Police Department at (336) 773-7700 or CrimeStoppers at (336) 727-2800 with information.
