ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A shooting at Northern Arizona University killed one student and injured three other students, the school said on Friday, adding that the suspect, also a student, is in custody. "Situation is stabilized," the university in Flagstaff, Arizona, said in a post on Twitter. The campus was not on lockdown, the university said. The first call of shots fired came in at 1:20 a.m. local time, university police chief Greg Fowler said at a morning news conference. "Two separate student groups got into a confrontation. The confrontation turned physical and one of our students, Steven Jones, 18 years old, produced a handgun and he shot four of our other students," said university police chief Greg Fowler at a morning news conference. The three injured victims, all male students, were being treated at Flagstaff Medical Center. Their conditions are not known. University president Rita Cheng says the campus is secure and classes will go on as scheduled. Northern Arizona University's Flagstaff campus has 20,000 students and is a gun-free zone.
