CMPD said its officers were unable to find the suspect and take them into custody. After a thorough search of CPCC’s campus, the all-clear was given and people were allowed to leave buildings and resume normal activity.
CPCC’s Central campus is located on 7th Street, just outside Uptown in Charlotte’s Elizabeth neighborhood.
ALERT The shelter in place order on Central Campus is lifted. CMPD advised Central Piedmont to end the shelter in place. CMPD continues to look for the suspect off campus.
You may resume normal activities and classes. Thank you for your cooperation during this event.
