One Person Killed, Three Wounded In Overnight Shooting at Northern Arizona University

Yet another school shooting took place last night, roughly the 249th mass shooting in the United States this year. One person was fatally shot and three people were wounded in a shooting in a parking lot at Flagstaff’s Northern Arizona University.

The university’s public relations director told the Associated Press that first 911 call about gunfire was placed at 1:20 a.m. There’s no information about either the victims or the suspect, who was arrested and remains in custody.

NAU says the incident is over and the school is not in lockdown; they’ve set up a family assistance center at a neighborhood restaurant, but classes are scheduled to go on as usual.
