FLAGSTAFF, AZ-- One person died and three others were injured in an early morning shooting at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, university officials said Friday.

The shooter was in custody, and the school was not on lockdown, university spokesman Cindy Brown told CNN.

The shooting happened in a parking lot next to the Mountain View residence hall around 1:20 a.m., she said.

The motive for the shooting was not immediately known, and it wasn't clear if any of the victims or the shooter were university students, according to Brown.

The injured were being treated at Flagstaff Medical Center. Their conditions were not immediately available.

The shooting comes the same day President Barack Obama is set to visit Roseburg, Oregon, and the families of those slain in the October 1 Umpqua Community College shooting.

In that shooting, 26-year-old Chris Harper-Mercer killed nine people before killing himself, according to police.
