ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. — Elizabeth City police have arrested a Bible college student who is also a part-time police officer for the shooting death of a fellow student.

Christopher Amyx, 23, is charged with first-degree murder. Police said he shot Jonathan Schipper of Havelock in the head on Sunday afternoon. Both attended Mid-Atlantic Christian University.

A police officer has been posted to the small campus of about 200 students. They held a memorial service for Schipper on Thursday. Amyx said he reacted in self-defense. He is a part-time police officer in the Edgecombe County town of Pinetops. ClientIP: UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
