FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- (WPIX) -- A Northern Arizona University student is dead and three others are injured after a shooting on campus early Friday morning.

NAU officials have identified the student killed as freshman Colin Brough, of Colorado. Nicholas Prato, Kyle Zientek and Nicholas Piring, also freshmen, are currently being treated at Flagstaff Medical Center. Their current conditions are unclear.

NAU tweeted out just before 3 a.m. that the suspect, Steven Jones, was in custody. The 18-year-old has been booked into jail on one count of first-degree murder and three counts of aggravated assault. He made his initial court appearance at 1 p.m. Friday and is held on $2 million cash bond.

A court document says Jones retrieved a gun from his car following a fistfight.
