Freshman charged in university shooting pleads not guilty

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) – Police records released Wednesday reveal details of the aftermath of a shooting at an Arizona university that left one person dead.

Police detained Steven Jones within two minutes of reports of a shooting at Northern Arizona University on Oct. 9. He pleaded not guilty this week to charges of first-degree murder and six counts of aggravated assault.

Colin Brough died and three other NAU students were injured in the shooting.

Police released body-camera footage, reports and radio traffic Wednesday, redacting the interviews with witnesses.

Students can be seen handcuffed in a parking lot as police sort out the crime scene. Jones can be heard crying in the back of a police car at times.

He remains jailed on a $2 million bond.
