A week in crime punctuated by campus shootings.... One week after a mass shooting at a community college Oregon left nine killed, U.S. President Barack Obama visited families of the victims in Roseburg. He said such violence in America that has become all too common.. and must end. (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, SAYING: "We're going to have to come together as a country to see how we can prevent this issues from taking place." Also this week, Sacramento police said U.S. Air Force airman Spencer Stone, one of three Americans who thwarted a train attack in France in August, was stabbed in Sacramento during an unrelated incident. They are still looking for the perpetrators in the altercation that occurred after a night out with friends. And still another shooting on Friday, this time near Texas Southern University, where a shooting nearby put the school on lockdown. The possible suspect was detained after two people appeared shot near the campus, the university said. That school shooting came just hours after an 18-year-old student opened fire on the campus of Northern Arizona University, killing at least one student and injuring others. Freshman Steven Jones has been arrested.
