An 18-year-old Northern Arizona University student is in custody after shooting four students and killing one.  Flagstaff Police Chief Greg Fowler says two groups of students got into a fight outside Mountain View Hall Dormitory when 18-year-old Steven Jones pulled out a gun and fired multiple shots killing one

student and injuring three others.  Three injured students have been transferred to a nearby hospital in unknown condition.  Jones, a freshman, was immediately taken into custody without incident. NAU officials sent out an emergency text alert to warn students to remain indoors.  Mountain View is a Frat House associated with Delta Chi Fraternity.  Delta Chi International headquarters have confirmed in a statement that “some of its fraternity members were involved in the shooting.”  Fowler says NAU is a free zone.  The Arizona Board of Regents prohibits anyone to carry guns on campus.  The Arizona law allows you to have a gun in your car in a locked compartment on campus, but that is where it stays, you are not allowed to carry guns on campus.”

For students devastated by the shooting, a Family Assistance Center has been set up in the ballroom of 1899 Bar & Grill. Parents may call 928-523-0007.
Update!  The victims currently being treated at Flagstaff Medical Center have been identified as Nicholas Prato, Kyle Zientek and Nicholas Piring.  The deceased student is 18-year-old Colin Brough.
