FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - The Latest on the trial involving a shooting at Northern Arizona University in October 2015 (all times local):

3:30 p.m.

A medical examiner has testified in the Northern Arizona University shooting trial that the muzzle of defendant Steven Jones’ gun was no more than two feet away from the victim when the shots were fired.

Jones is charged with first-degree murder and aggravated assault for the October 2015 shootings in Flagstaff that left one student dead and three others wounded.

The 20-year-old Jones is claiming self-defense in the trial that is in its second week.

Coconino County Medical Examiner Lawrence Czarnecki testified Friday that Colin Brough died from a gunshot that severed his aorta, causing him to rapidly bleed out.

11 a.m.

Two Northern Arizona University students have testified in court against their friend who is accused of fatally shooting one person and injuring three others.

Jacob Mike and Shay McConnell said in their testimony against their friend that they had been with Steven Jones at a house near campus in October 2015 when he allegedly shot four students.

The two men say they remember feeling more afraid of Jones than the four students in the moment of the shooting.

Jones’ attorney argued that Mike had called police in a much more dire state the night of the shooting.

The attorney says Mike had told police the four students were hurting Jones.
