"We mourn for the victims of this horrific and infuriating act of violence," said Governor Cooper. "Thank you to our local and state law enforcement who worked tirelessly to capture the suspect."
Individuals, businesses, schools, municipalities, counties and other government subdivisions are also encouraged to fly flags at half-staff for the duration of time indicated.
