ANOTHER MASS SHOOTING IN THE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD.
ONE DEAD, 3 INJURED
A deadly shooting occurred on Northern Arizona University’s Flagstaff campus early this morning, and the suspected shooter is in custody, according to a university spokesperson.
One person died and three others were wounded in the shooting, the spokesperson said.
It's unclear what sparked the shooting, which took place near Mountain View Hall, a dormitory that houses most of the campus' students involved in Greek organizations.
Residents in Mountain View Hall were asked to stay indoors, according to an emergency alert sent by the university.

In embarrassing news, Dr. Ben Carson, the Tea Party's very own "Sleepy" candidate for Preznit of the U.S. of A. talked about how brave he was when a gun was pulled on him while he was standing in line at a Popeye's fast food chain:
The Republican presidential candidate said Thursday morning that he had a gun drawn on him while visiting a Baltimore fried chicken restaurant, reported The Hill.
“I have had a gun held on me when I was in a Popeyes,” Carson told host Karen Hunter on SiriusXM radio, referencing an incident at a Baltimore fast-food restaurant.
“[A] guy comes in, put the gun in my ribs,” he added. “And I just said, ‘I believe that you want the guy behind the counter.’”
Why didn't Dr. Carson rush at the guy who was pointing the gun in his ribs -- you know, like he said the victims of the Roseberg shootings should have done? Instead, Dr. Carson fingered some other person for the gunman to go after.
Brave, brave, Sir Carson!
Dr. Carson admitted to the world that he didn't do what he told the victims' families the victims should have done: Rushed at the guy with the gun. Instead, Dr. Carson directed the gunman at an employee, thus saving his own brave, brave hide.
(Dr. Carson didn't say what happened next, but giggled and then fell asleep.)
