Several people have been shot, reportedly by possibly two gunmen at a Houston, Texas community college. Various news reports indicate two victims are expected at a local hospital, while others indicate at least three shooting victims.
“Multiple people have been shot at a north Harris County college, and a second suspect may be on the loose, Harris County Precinct 4 deputy constables said,” Click2Houston reports:
Investigators said the shooting happened at Lone Star College’s North Harris campus, 2700 West W. W. Thorne Drive near Aldine Westfield shortly after noon on Tuesday.
Officials have not said exactly how many people have been shot or the extent of their injuries. Ben Taub Hospital said it was expecting two patients. Memorial Hermann Hospital said one person was transported by ambulance.
Deputy constables said they have at least one person detained, but have not said if that person is a suspected shooter.
Investigators said a second suspect, an 18- to 20-year-old black male wearing a red shirt and Falcons cap, fled north of campus to a nearby subdivision. Deputies are actively searching for him.
