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.
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. A third person, identified as a maintenance man, was accidentally hit as well. Another person was taken to an area hospital for a medical condition.
Two people have been taken into custody. One of the suspects was reportedly wounded in the shooting, and the other was arrested by a Houston Police Department SWAT team in a wooded area. No charges have been filed at this time.
"Panic, panic, panic. Some people were yelling don't push because someone did fall," a Lone Star College student named Keisha told us. "It hit home. It's serious. What you see you on TV going in other states, other campuses, other schools, you always say, 'Oh, I'm praying for the families, or I'm praying for those involved.' When it happens so close to home, it makes you think, it could've been me. I was however many feet away from being outside. The gunshots were so loud, I still don't know how close to my physical being."
