Early Friday morning, a freshman student at Northern Arizona University drew a handgun and shot four other students during a confrontation. One of those students, Colin Brough, is dead.

Police reportedly arrested the shooter, Steven Jones, after he stopped firing.

Then, just hours later, another shooting occurred near Texas Southern University’s campus. Two people were reportedly shot in that incident and one is dead. The campus is currently in lockdown and classes have been canceled. Police say that a possible suspect is in custody.

According to Everytown For Gun Safety, there have been 144 school shootings in the United States since 2013, an average of one a week. On Friday, the nation did not even make it an entire day before another shooting happened.
