Defendant in NAU Shooting Set To Change Plea
A former Northern Arizona University student charged in a fatal shooting on campus is scheduled to change his plea at a court hearing.
It's unclear what plea Steven Jones will enter Thursday.
He was facing trial later this month on charges of second-degree murder and aggravated assault.
Jones has acknowledged firing the shots that killed a 20-year-old man in October 2015 and injuring three other students.
Jones has said he acted in self-defense. Prosecutors have painted Jones as the aggressor.
The shooting initially stoked fears of a mass shooting at the school in Flagstaff that has more than 25,000 students.
