NC slayings spark Muslim outcry, renew claims of bias

The slayings of three young Muslims near the University of North Carolina tapped a deep well of fear and anger over bias toward American Muslims. The hashtag #MuslimLivesMatter spread widely on Twitter. When police said a preliminary investigation indicated a parking dispute had triggered the shootings, several US Muslim leaders said the brutal nature of the crime warranted a hate crime investigation from both federal and local law enforcement. The family of the victims joined the call for a hate-crime inquiry.
