Lone Star Community College gunmen in custody


An unknown gunman released fire on three people at the North Harris campus of Lone Star Community College Tuesday.

It has not been disclosed as to where the shooting started or why it did, but authorities said they suspect it to have taken place in the library or cafeteria of the campus that houses nearly 12,000 students.

One suspect was taken into custody following the act while Houston police were in pursuit of another, who is now in custody, authorities said.

Some reports say one alleged gunman shot himself and was subsequently arrested.

Victims were immediately transported to Ben Taub General Hospital, according to a spokeswoman for the Harris Health System.

Of the three individuals shot, one has been listed in critical condition. An additional person was reported to have suffered a heart attack in response to the shooting.

Students of the college reported the incident occurred in response to an altercation between two students, KHOU said.

UH Department of Public Safety sent students an email early this afternoon, alerting them of the severity of the case. The campus is under high security watch until given further instruction.
