People across the Triangle are honoring three young people who were known by thousands for their service in the community. They were lost in the Chapel Hill Shooting.
On this day in 2015, the Muslims were shot and killed in their Chapel Hill townhouse. Deah Barakat was attending UNC’s Dental School at the time and his wife, Yusor Abu-Salha was about to enroll there. Her sister, Razan, was a design student at N.C. State.
The man charged with their murders, Craig Hicks, is still awaiting trial.
