Reports: Both Suspects In Custody In Texas Shooting

Posted: Updated:

HOUSTON (AP) - Authorities say the shooting at a Texas community college was the result of an altercation between two people, and at least one was a student.

The shooting happened before 1 p.m. on Jan. 22, 2013, at the Lone Star College System campus about 20 miles north of downtown Houston.

Aerial footage from local television stations shows emergency personnel attending to some people on stretchers and at least one being taken into an ambulance. Others can be seen running from a building led by officers.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office says it has no immediate details. Texas college on lockdown amid reports of a gunman on campus:

At least three people, including a suspect, have been shot at Lone Star Community in North Harris County, according to Precinct 4 deputy constables.

Dozens of law enforcement officers are searching for a second suspect on the loose. They are searching a wooded area north of the campus.

KHOU 11 News stringer Lloyd Overcash saw one male being brought out of the library on a stretcher. He was reportedly handcuffed to the stretcher, according to witnesses.

At least one woman was being treated by EMS crews outside the library when Air 11 flew over.

Other crews were entering the library with stretchers. 

Just before 1 p.m. several people were evacuated from the library and other areas of campus.

The shooting happened around 12:30 p.m. at the campus in the 2700 block of W.W. Thorne Drive, near Bush Intercontinental Airport.

The only thing campus officials could confirm is that the school is on lockdown.

Several Aldine ISD schools are also on lockdown while the search for the suspect continues. They are Nimitz High School, Nimitz 9th Grade Campus, Parker Intermediate and Dunn Clifford Elementary.
