Chapel Hill Man Arrested for Homicide After Three Muslim Students Found Dead
Craig Hicks, 46, is accused of first-degree murder in the deaths of three Muslim students in a quiet Chapel Hill neighborhood. Currently held in the Durham County Jail, Hicks is accused of shooting his Finley Forest neighbors Deah Shaddy Barakat, 23, and his wife Yusor Abu-Salha, 21, and Abu-Salha's sister, Razan Abu-Salha, 19, of Raleigh. The incident may have occurred as a result of a parking dispute in the neighborhood of rented condominiums. Motive for the shooting is still unclear. Fellow students suspect it may have been a hate crime.
