Original Story: At least one person was shot near Texas Southern University Friday morning, according to initial reports from KPRC 2 Houston. The shooting reportedly took place in a student housing complex near the university at around 11:30 a.m. Other stations reported two shot in the attack.
The campus was reportedly put on lockdown and as of 11:50 a.m. local time, police were still searching for the suspect. It marked the second shooting on a college campus Friday.
