Breaking: One Dead, Three Injured in Northern University Shooting – Gunman in Custody
An early morning fight between two groups of students escalated into gunfire in the parking lot outside an Arizona university dormitory, leaving one person dead and three others wounded, authorities said Friday.
The suspected shooter, identified by police as 18-year-old Steven Jones, was in custody, said university police Chief JT Fowler.
The parking lot where the shooting happened is just outside Mountain View Hall dormitory at the northeast side of the Flagstaff campus, said school public relations director Cindy Brown.
The dorm is home to many of the campus' sororities and fraternities, according to the school's website.
"This is not going to be a normal day at NAU," said school president Rita Cheng. "Our hearts are heavy."
