NAU shooting: One dead, three injured; Official Says

One person was killed and three were injured in a shooting on Northern Arizona University’s Flagstaff campus early Friday morning, according to police.

The shooter has been taken into custody, NAU reported. The campus is not on lock down.

Initial calls reporting shots fired came in at 1:20 a.m. Arizona time, the school said in a statement.

“The incident took place outside Mountain View Hall on the northeast end of the Flagstaff Campus,” according to NAU.

Mountain View Hall is “a dormitory which houses most of the campus’ students involved in Greek organizations,” ABC News reported.

Cindy Brown, the public relations director for NAU, told the Associated Press she was unsure what caused the shooting.

The three injured victims are being treated at Flagstaff Medical Center, NAU said. Brown did not provide additional details about the suspect, the victims or their conditions.

“I don’t have the identity of any of the victims or the shooter at this time,” Brown told CNN. Brown confirmed that there are about 20,000 students on the Flagstaff Campus and said that students were sent a series of alerts regarding the shooter situation.

A press conference is scheduled for 6 a.m. local time, Brown told CNN that “our police department will be able to provide more details,” at that press conference.

“NAUPD is working on the investigation with the Flagstaff Police Department at the scene,” NAU said.

The University has set up a family assistance center and set up a phone line for parents.
