HOUSTON (KTRK) — Officials have confirmed three people were injured during a shooting at Lone Star College on WW Thorne Drive in north Houston and the situation is said to be under control. We’re told two people are in custody. They are being described only as persons of interest.
We’re told two of the victims suffered multiple gunshot wounds, but were conscious when they arrived at Ben Taub Hospital. Both have been taken into surgery in what’s being called ‘relatively serious condition.’
“There was a lot of blood in the floor and one guy inside. I think he was shot in the leg. He was on the floor, but he wasn’t dead,” a Lone Star College student told us.
Authorities say the shooting was an altercation between two individuals, at least one of whom had student identification. One of the two men pulled out a handgun. A third person, identified as a maintenance man, was accidentally hit. Another woman, uninvolved in the shooting, was taken to an area hospital for a medical condition.
