FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — The Flagstaff Police Department has released body camera footage of the moments following a shooting on Northern Arizona University’s campus that killed one and injured four others, KPHO reported.

The Oct. 9 incident occurred after the suspect claimed students attacked him. As officers arrived, students were yelling in distress.

“He [expletive] took off and shot both of our friends. We’re trying to help him,” a student is heard saying in the video.
