Shots Fired on Campus of Lone Star College in Texas
(HOUSTON) — A fight at a Houston college campus Tuesday resulted in a shooting that left three people injured and two others in custody, officials said.
Shots were fired on the campus of Lone Star College shortly after 12:30 p.m. CT, causing the campus to go into lockdown and some students to be evacuated, according to police.
Three people were injured in the gunfire, which police say stemmed from a fight that broke out between two men on campus.
Two suspects are now in police custody, according to officials. They have not yet released any details on the suspects’ identities.
Two individuals with multiple gunshot wounds are in serious condition at Ben Taub Hospital, according to ABC News affiliate KTRK. The condition and whereabouts of the third injured person was not immediately known.
The campus reopened about an hour and a half after the gunshots.
When the shots were fired, the school told all students to seek “shelter in place.” Officials evacuated some of the students from campus buildings.
The shooting comes only a month after the massacre at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Conn., in which 20 students and six staff members were shot, sparking a wave of attempted copycat crimes in states like California and Indiana.
The Connecticut shooting inspired calls from government officials including President Obama for stricter gun control laws.
