A college campus just north of Houston is the latest to experience a school shooting.
Lone Star College's North Harris campus was invaded by as many as two gunmen Tuesday afternoon. Shots were fired and at least three students were reported injured. Paramedics have responded.
An emergency alert was sent to students advising them and faculty to take immediate shelter and not to enter the campus until notified further, Fox News reported.
"We know that shots have been fired and we are in a shelter-in-place situation on the campus," Vicki Cassidy, manager of media relations for Lone Star College System, told the Houston Chronicle. "It's a pretty chaotic scene at this point in time." The campus is one of six that makes up the community college system.
The shooting happened sometime shortly past noon, according to the Harris County Sheriff's Office. One shooter is in custody and authorities are seeking a second gunman.
Four area public schools have been placed on lockdown as a precaution: Parker Intermediate, Dunn Elementary, Nimitz High School and Nimitz ninth-grade campus.
