CHARLOTTE — UNC-Charlotte has set up a new website to honor the two students killed in a campus shooting last week.

UNCC also said the website — ninernationremembers.uncc.edu — will support the four students wounded in the April 30 shooting on campus and keep the campus informed of events related to the incident.

“The events of last week are woven into the fabric that binds Niner Nation together, from the fear and shock we shared as the tragedy unfolded to the acts of heroism and sacrifice that saved many lives,” Chancellor Philip L. Dubois said in a statement.

The website includes photos, videos and social media posts from a May 1 vigil and other on-campus remembrances; information on how to help the victims and survivors; statements from the chancellor; and a place to write messages to the UNCC community.

On the new website Tuesday, Dubois announced that 14 people had agreed to serve on a new university commission that will address how UNCC will remember the events of April 30. Emily Zimmern, former president and executive director of the Levine Museum of the New South in Charlotte, will lead the panel of UNCC students, employees and Charlotte-area residents.

Riley Howell, 21, and Reed Parlier, 19, were killed when a gunman opened fire in a UNCC classroom.

Trystan Andrew Terrell, 22 and a former UNCC student, has been charged with first-degree murder, first-degree attempted murder and other offenses in connection with the attack.

Dubois promised last week that UNCC will conduct an "extensive" review of the university's response to the shooting.
