Breaking news out of Flagstaff, Arizona – A shooting outside a North Arizona University dormitory early this morning has left at least one person dead and three others wounded, a school official said.
The suspected shooter is reported to be in custody.
The gunfire erupted in a parking lot of the university, just outside Mountainview Hall dormitory at the northeast side of the Flagstaff campus, school public relations director Cindy Brown said.
The first police call about the gunfire came in at 1:20 a.m. PDT.
Brown said she didn’t know what caused the shooting and also didn’t have any details about the suspect and victims, their conditions and whether they are students.
Brown said the wounded were taken to Flagstaff Medical Center, which said it couldn’t release any information on conditions.
Both university and Flagstaff police are investigating.
The Flagstaff shooting comes on the same day that President Obama is scheduled to visit Roseburg, Oregon, where eight students and a teacher were shot and killed last week at Umpqua Community College. The gunman in the Oregon shooting wounded nine others before turning the gun on himself.
NAU plays a major role in the northern Arizona city of Flagstaff.
The 4-year public university has more than 25,000 total undergraduates.
