Justin also was a reporter for NAU’s campus newspaper, The Lumberjack for three and a half years, and continues to play on the school’s Quidditch team. Justin’s favorite part of radio reporting is the emotion that can be conveyed in audio that just can’t be done in print.

One week ago, gunfire broke the early morning quiet on the campus of Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. A fight between two groups of students turned deadly when one of them - an 18 year old freshman - drew a gun and opened fire, killing one student and wounding three others. It was the first school shooting in NAU's 116 year history. Over the last week, students have been coming to terms with the tragedy, and wondering about their safety, talking about gun control. Arizona Public Radio's Justin Regan spoke with some of them and produced this audio postcard.

Bartenders watch us, they can’t help it, it’s part of their job. When they see our drinks getting low, they pour us fresh ones. When they catch us looking at the menu, they know we’re ready to order food. And when they see someone else watching us making us uncomfortable, they’re ready to intervene. 

At least the bartenders in Flagstaff are. For the last couple of years, the city has been a national test site for a program to train bar staff how to spot potential predators. As Arizona Public Radio’s Justin Regan reports, their work is part of a nation-wide movement to prevent sexual assault through bystander intervention.
