Breaking: TX College On Lockdown, Reports Shooter On Campus
Update 2:24 p.m.: Two people just told KHOU that the shooting occurred when two students were fighting in the school and pulled guns on each other, so it doesn’t seem to be a premeditated attack. One of the three people shot is believed to be one of the suspects. KHOU is streaming live here.
Original post: There are currently three people who appear to be injured after one or more shooters opened fire on the Lone Star College campus in North Houston on Tuesday.
A campus spokesperson confirmed to ABC 13 early this afternoon that shots were fired on the Lone Star campus. Three people appear to be injured, two women and one male. Local CBS affiliate KHOU reports that one suspect is already in custody and one is still outstanding. Students are being ushered into the wooded area near the school for safety, and the campus is on lockdown. KHOU just reported the shooting took place in the school administration building, and then one shooter retreated to the library. S.W.A.T. teams just arrived on campus, but much remains unknown about the scene, including weapon details or confirmation on the shooters and victims.
A Houston-area community college went into lockdown Tuesday afternoon amid reports of a shooter on campus.
Lone Star College System issued an alert on its website Tuesday telling students and faculty on its Houston-area campus in north Harris County to take immediate shelter or avoid the campus. College spokesman Jed Young said it had received reports of a shooter.
Aerial footage from local television stations showed police cars and ambulances parked on the campus, emergency personnel attending to people on stretchers and at least person being put into an ambulance. Other people could be seen running from a building led by officers.
