At 5:11 p.m. Tuesday, Chapel Hill Police Officers responded to a report of gunshots in the area of Summerwalk Circle in Chapel Hill.  When officers arrived, they located three subjects who had been shot.  All three subjects were pronounced dead at the scene. 

The Chapel Hill Police Department has arrested Craig Stephen Hicks, 46 years of age, of 270 Summerwalk Circle, Chapel Hill.

      Craig Stephen Hicks

Mr. Hicks has been charged with 3 counts of First-Degree Murder for the murders of; 

  • Deah Shaddy Barakat 23 years of age of Chapel Hill,
  • Yusor Mohammad 21 years of age of Chapel Hill, and
  • Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha 19 years of age of Raleigh.

Mr. Hicks is currently being held, without bond, in the Durham County Jail.

Our preliminary investigation indicates that the crime was motivated by an ongoing neighbor dispute over parking.  Hicks is cooperating with investigators and more information may be released at a later time.

"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.  Our thoughts are with the families and friends of these young people who lost their lives so needlessly,” said Chief Chris Blue of the Chapel Hill Police Department
