Three people suffered gunshot wounds, and another has reportedly sustained a heart attack after shots were fired at the school.
According to one student who witnessed the shooting, an altercation between two males took place before shots were fired inside a cafeteria building on the Lone Star College campus. The student, who spoke to KHOU, said that the two males involved in the altercation were both shot, as well as someone who was not involved in the situation, who was presumably caught in the cross fire.
"I heard about six shots, and kids started rushing down the hallway and a few even came into our class ... They were just shouting. I couldn't hear anything," Amanda Vasquez, another witness who is a freshman at the school, told KHOU. "For me, I was just trying to get under a table, get into the back corner of the room ... and I called my mom just because I needed her to know that I was OK."
Medical crews could be seen tending to at least three victims outside the building, and at least one gunshot victim was taken by ground ambulance to Ben Taub Hospital.
The campus was evacuated, and students and faculty were instructed by the school to avoid the campus or take shelter immediately.
