Police: Parking dispute may have led to triple Chapel Hill shooting

46 year old self proclaimed Atheist Craig Stephen Hicks has been arrested in the shooting deaths of a man, his wife and his sister in the Chapel Hill Area of North Carolina. All three victims were Muslim.

From WRAL.com:

"Chapel Hill police said Wednesday that an ongoing dispute over parking may have led to a triple shooting Tuesday night at a condominium complex on Summerwalk Circle."

According to WRAL.com police made this statement to address concerns over the possibility of the killings being a possible "hate crime," :

"Police said Wednesday that they are looking into what led to the "senseless and tragic act." "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," Chapel Hill Police Chief Chris Blue said in a statement." 

#ChapelHillShooting has been trending this morning on Twitter and other Social Media in response to the shootings.
