UNCC student shows recovery on Twitter, walks again after shooting incident

CHARLOTTE, NC (WIS) - Thirteen days after the horrific shooting at the University of North Carolina Charlotte campus, one of the three injured students is making a heartwarming recovery.

Drew Pescaro tweeted this video on May 14 taking his first steps without a walker. He takes several steps without too much assistance down a hospital hallway.

Pescaro and three other students were injured in the shooting on April 30. This same shooting killed two students: 21-year-old Riley Howell and 19-year-old Reed Parlier.

Both students received their degrees posthumously on May 11.
