A deadly shooting occurred on Northern Arizona University’s Flagstaff campus early this morning, and the suspected shooter is in custody, according to a university spokesperson.
One person died and three others were wounded in the shooting, the spokesperson said.
It's unclear what sparked the shooting, which took place near Mountain View Hall, a dormitory that houses most of the campus' students involved in Greek organizations.
Residents in Mountain View Hall were asked to stay indoors, according to an emergency alert sent by the university.
More than 20,000 students are enrolled at the Flagstaff campus.

As any shooting is despicable and deplorable and generally unwanted by the masses. But how is one dead and 3 wounded worthy of national or international news?
Are all shootings reported on now? Is this special because it's a "gun free zone" university and the perp didn't follow the rule of letting law enforcement know he had a gun on campus? Does it really matter where these things happen anyway? Is it because it didn't happen in the ghettos that this is being reported on?
Arizona is indeed a concealed carry state without permits. Perhaps they are their own demise in this, and likely many other instances of gun related deaths. But, maybe not.
