HOUSTON, TEXAS [NEWS CENTER23] — Three people, including two suspects, suffered gunshot wounds in a shooting shortly after noon today at Lone Star College North Harris Campus in Houston, near Aldine.
Harris County deputies say the third victim was a campus maintenance man, but provided no further identifications or conditions.
Lone Star College sent out a tweet about 2 p.m. claiming the shooting was the result of a dispute between two men. KPRC-TV in Houston quotes several students saying they heard as many as six gunshots coming from a classroom building hallway.
A protective lockdown for students and faculty was lifted this afternoon. The campus was closed for the rest of the day, but is scheduled to reopen tomorrow. There were more than 10,000 students on campus at the time of the shooting.
