ARIZONA - One person has died and several others have been wounded during a shooting at Northern Arizona University in the United States.

The shooter was caught by police and is currently in custody.

This incident comes a week after a gunman went on a shooting rampage at a college in Oregon, killing nine people.

The incident happened outside the Mountain View resident hall at 1:20am. It occurred in a parking lot adjacent to a residence hall.

Mountain View hall is described as a dorm, housing most of the campus' Greek system students.

Three other people were shot in the incident and then taken to the hospital in Flagstaff.

President Barack Obama will travel to Roseburg, Oregon, to meet privately with families of the nine victims of the mass shooting at a community college last week.

The university's Flagstaff campus has 20,000 students and is a gun-free zone, Brown said.

Students were notified about the shooting by text and social media.
