NAU shooting trial: Witness sessions done; closing arguments next week

TRIAL STREAMING SCHEDULE: The remainder of the trial will be Tuesdays through Fridays from 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - Steven Jones is on trial in the case of an October 2015 shooting at Northern Arizona University that killed one student and injured three others.

Thursday and Friday, Jones took the stand in his own defense for the first time and faced cross-examination from the prosecution.

Court has adjourned for the weekend. The trial will resume Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. with jury instructions and closing statements.

Jones' defense team has worked to build the case that the victims of the shooting were bullying and harassing Jones before he shot them that night, claiming self-defense.

Jones faces charges of first-degree murder in the death of Colin Brough and aggravated assault against the other students injured in the shooting.
