A campus shooting left one student dead at an Arizona university Friday morning, before America has even had time to make sense of the shooting at an Oregon college earlier this month.
The deadly shooting occurred on Northern Arizona University’s Flagstaff campus in the parking lot of Mountain View Hall dormitory. Campus police say that a verbal argument broke out in the parking lot at around 1:20 a.m. local time between two groups of students and the altercation turned physical.
One student, 18-year-old Steven Jones, pulled out a handgun and shot at several students. In the melee that followed, Jones shot and killed Colin Borough and injured three other students.
When police showed up at the scene, Jones was arrested without incident and is reportedly cooperating with the police. It’s not clear what sparked the argument, but money problems between the two groups may have played a contributing factor.
All four victims are members of Delta Chi. In a statement released following the
shooting, the fraternity says that the incident had “no ties to the chapter.”
