Fight Between Students Was The Cause Of Northern Arizona University Shooting

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.

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.
