While people in Oregon are still mourning those lost in a shooting at Umpqua Community College, other school shootings in the United States continue to make headlines. Two separate incidents, one in Texas and another in Arizona occurred this week.

KELLY MCEVERS, HOST:

More news today on guns and schools. A shooting Flagstaff, Ariz., took place early this morning outside a residence hall at Northern Arizona University. One person was killed. Police arrested a freshman there who's now been charged with first degree murder.

ROBERT SIEGEL, HOST:

The university police chief said the incident is related to a conflict between two groups of students. Delta Chi, one of the fraternities on campus, issued a statement confirming the involvement of some its members. The suspect was not a member.

MCEVERS: And in Texas late this morning, a shooting on the edge of Texas Southern University's campus left one dead - a freshman. It was the third shooting at Texas Southern this week and the fourth this semester. The school locked down its campus and canceled classes for the rest of the day.

SIEGEL: All this as President Obama went to Roseburg, Ore., to meet privately with families of victims of last week's shooting at Umpqua Community College.
