Suspect in Custody After Shooting at Arizona University Kills 1, Wounds 4

October 09, 2015  | 

A male freshman at Northern Arizona University opened fire on a group of fellow students at the Flagstaff campus early Friday during a confrontation in a dormitory parking lot, killing one student and injuring three more, the campus police chief said.

The 18-year-old suspect was identified as Steven Jones, an NAU student, said NAU police chief Gregory Fowler.

Fowler told reporters that the suspect did not leave the scene and was arrested without incident. He said the suspect was cooperating with police. He said the shooting occurred around 1:20 a.m. local time.

"Two separate student groups got into a confrontation, the confrontation turned physical and one of our students, Steven Jones, 18, produced a handgun and shot four of our other students," Fowler said. "One of our students is deceased."

The victims — all males — were shot "multiple times," he said. They were being treated at Flagstaff Medical Center, USA Today reports.
