Several Shot at Texas College, Dispute Reportedly Was Between Two Individuals

We guess this was another of those “gun-free zones” that don’t seem to apply to folks with bad intent.

At least three people, including a possible 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 the gunman who got away. One of the places they are searching is a wooded area north of the campus.

Witnesses say two males were arguing when one of them pulled a gun and opened fire.

At least three people were wounded, including the man involved in the argument, according to witnesses.

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.

As we learned from Newtown, don’t believe everything you first read or see on television. This item from a few minutes ago says it was a dispute between two men. Could be that or possibly someone armed stopped a gunman. We’ll see.

Jed Young, a spokesman for Lone Star College tells CNN that the shooting appeared to be “between two individuals.”

One of the shooters was wounded and taken into custody, and the other fled the campus. He could not say whether they were students.

Young said two students were wounded when they were caught in the crossfire. Reports indicate they were shot in the leg.

Young said the danger has been mitigated and the “situation is under control.”

This report says one of the shooters was wearing a red Atlanta Falcons jersey, which could indicate gang activity.

    Since I heard on TV the euphemism “gang activity” and the lack of news regarding the race of those involved tells me this story will go down the memory hole at warp speed.
