Northern Arizona University Campus Shooting Came After Fight Between Two Groups of Students

1 post in this topic

Here we go again, another shooting. One after the other. This time the shooter is still alive and in custody. So here's what going to happen sooner or later. We're going to be a totally locked down police state in every public/private place where people gather in any number or they are going to find more ways to take more guns away. Or both. Obama is thinking about making an executive order on background checks.  You know he will. 

Northern Arizona University Campus Shooting Came After Fight Between Two Groups of Students

A fight that broke out between two groups of students at Northern Arizona University’s Flagstaff campus left one person dead and three hospitalized after one of the students opened fire on the others.

The shooter has been identified as Steven Jones, an 18-year-old freshman at the school, who has been taken into custody by campus police, according to NAU police chief Greg Fowler.

Colin Brough has been identified by the school as the student who was killed in the incident, and Nicholas Prato, Kyle Zientek and Nicholas Piring were named as the individuals who were shot but are being treated at Flagstaff Medical Center.

Brough and the three young men who were injured were all members of the Delta Chi Fraternity, according fraternity rep Justin Sherman.

"The alleged gunman, Steven Jones, is not a member of Delta Chi," Sherman said in a statement sent to ABC News.



Jones has been charged with one count of first degree murder and three counts of aggravated assault by the Northern Arizona University police department, and he is due to make his initial court appearance and be read his charges this afternoon in Flagstaff Justice Court which is located in the Coconino County Court.

Fowler said that the altercation started at 1:20 a.m. when "several of our students, two separate student groups got into a confrontation."

Campus police arrived at the scene and apprehended Jones "without further trouble," Fowler said.

It is unclear what sparked the shooting, which took place near Mountain View Hall, a dormitory that houses most of the campus' students involved in Greek organizations.

Fowler said that none of the violence happened inside any residence halls.
