One Dead, Three Injured Following Shooting at Arizona College

One person is dead and three others injured following a shooting overnight at a college campus in Arizona. 

Police say the suspected gunman, Steven Jones, who is a freshman at the school, is in custody. 

Shots rang out at Northern Arizona University around 1:20 Friday morning in a dorm parking lot. 

Authorities say there was a confrontation between two groups, when Jones pulled out a handgun, shooting four other students.

Colin Brough was killed on scene. Three others, Nicholas Prato, Kyle Zientek and Nicholas Piring, are being treated at Flagstaff Medical Center for multiple gunshot wounds.

The Delta Chi Fraternity said some of it’s members were involved in the shooting.

Spokespeople for the university say guns are not allowed on campus. 

Meanwhile, classes are expected to go on as scheduled. 

The shooting is the second in a week at a college campus.  

Last week, a gunman opened fire at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon killing nine people and injuring nine others before turning the gun on himself. 

President Obama is traveling to Roseburg Friday to meet with victim’s families.
