Reports: 3 shot at Lone Star College in Houston – This Just In - CNN.com Blogs

Three people, including one gunman, were wounded in shooting between two people at Lone Star College campus in Houston, Texas, school spokesman says
Second gunman is on the loose, but no longer believed to be on campus, school spokesman says
Fourth person suffered heart attack, federal law enforcement source says
Below are the latest updates as they come to us; full story here. Also, check out CNN affiliates KHOU, KPRC and KTRK
[Updated at 3:23 p.m. ET] Texas Gov. Rick Perry is being briefed about the situation by law enforcement personnel, Perry spokesman Josh Havens said.

"(Perry's) thoughts and prayers are with those that have been impacted," Havens said. "We have nothing more to add at this point, but the governor will continue to closely monitor the situation."

[Updated at 3:17 p.m. ET] A freshman who was in a nearby classroom, Amanda Vasquez, tells CNN's Brooke Baldwin that she heard about six shots. She says she heard from other people that some shooting happened in a library, but she believes that the gunshots she heard came not from the library, but from the hallway outside her class.

"I was in the academic building, waiting for English class to start. I heard about six shots, and kids started rushing down the hallway. A few came into our class. It really happened so fast," she said.

She said people were shouting, and she hid under a table in a corner of the classroom. She called her mother.

"I called my mom to (let her know) I was OK (and that) I loved her, just in case anything was going to happen," Vasquez said. "... At first she didn’t believe me ... but I kept telling her it's happening and need you to call the cops."

[Updated at 3:06 p.m. ET] Someone – a fourth person – suffered a heart attack, according to a federal law enforcement source who is receiving reports from the scene, CNN's Carol Cratty reports.

So, recapping what we've been told:

– Three people, including a gunman, were wounded in a shooting between two people on the North Harris campus of Lone Star College in Houston, school spokesman Jed Young said.
– The second gunman is on the loose but not believed to be on campus, Young said.
– A fourth person suffered a heart attack, according to the federal law enforcement source.
– The shooting happened at a campus library, the federal law enforcement source says.
– No deaths have been reported.

[Updated at 2:54 p.m. ET] Two wounded people have been taken to surgery at Ben Taub Hospital and are in "relatively serious condition," CNN affiliate KTRK reported. They were conscious when they arrived at the hospital, KTRK reported.

[Updated at 2:43 p.m. ET] Three people – one suspected shooter and two people caught in a "crossfire" – were wounded in a shooting that appears to have been between two people at the Lone Star College campus in Houston, school spokesman Jed Young said.

The wounded suspect is in custody, and the second gunman is on the loose but not believed to be on campus, Young said.

Authorities believe the school is "under control, but the school is still being evacuated," Young said.

Young said he doesn't know the conditions of the wounded. He said the shooting – apparently between two gunmen – was reported at about 12:31 p.m. CT.

Two apparently unintended targets were shot in a "crossfire," he said.

[Updated at 2:28 p.m. ET] The FBI and ATF have sent agents to assist local authorities, according to Shauna Dunlop with FBI Houston and Franceska Perot with ATF Houston.

[Updated at 2:27 p.m. ET] A witness told CNN affiliate KPRC that she hid underneath her desk while she heard five or six gunshots at Lone Star College.

[Updated at 2:26 p.m. ET] One person has been transported to Houston Northwest Medical Center, according to spokeswoman Ashley Walton.

She would not give any further details about the patient.

[Updated at 2:14 p.m. ET] Students were filing out of what CNN affiliate KHOU reports is the library on campus.

[Updated at 2:10 p.m. ET] Video from CNN affiliate KPRC shows law enforcement personnel herding people from one part of the campus to another.

[Updated at 2:02 p.m. ET] Students at a Lone Star College campus in Houston have been asked to take shelter after reports of a gunman on campus, a school spokesman said.

More than 10,000 students are at the North Harris campus of Lone Star College, spokesman Jed Young said.


[Initial post, 1:50 p.m. ET] A shooting has been reported at a Lone Star College campus in Houston, Texas, CNN affiliates KTRK and KPRC reported.

Footage from KPRC showed a large number of law enforcement personnel on campus, and at least two people being wheeled on gurneys toward ambulances.

This story is developing. We'll post more details as we get them.

Seems like more of a shooting beside a school than a school shooting.


Though people will still try to pin it as some sort of massacre.

Personally, I don't think the gun laws are going to affect how some of these people are going to think. There will always be illegal fire arms, and most of the shooters blow their heads off after they commit the crime/massacre anyways.

Personally, as much as it pains to hear people getting hurt/killed by gun violence I am getting tired of hearing about it all the time.

If the Media wasn't so high strung about covering every angle and going into the back stories of the shooters etc., then less attention would be brought to it and hopefully less crazy people getting ideas from what they see on TV.

I didn't follow this shooting that happened today but how many shootings in Vancouver last year involved innocent lives being taken?

You do realize a majority of those were targeted shooting? Not some crazed gunman with access to high powered gun like in the states. Over there any idiot can buy any gun without any background/mental health check in those mobile gun shows. Here there's no full-automatic guns allowed for citizens period.

Every Canadian with an RPAL can get a so called "high powered firearm", the reason you don't see civilians shooting things up with them is because of the RPAL you have to obtain, which is not easy for the average idiot. To get something as low powered as a 10/22, you still have to have a PAL, which is also not given to those that are not deemed suitable.

Here is a quote regarding what is required to purchase an automatic firearm (wherever they are legal in the states.)

"Once the seller is satisfied with the payment plan and has his funds, he will begin the paperwork. This requires a little bit of work on your end. You will need to get a few things in order for the process to be complete. You will need to get two sets of fingerprint cards done, two passport photos, and fill out a Form 4 (to include the signature of the CLEO of the area you live in) and write a check to the Department of the Treasury for the $200 transfer tax. It is this special tax that will allow you to legally own the weapon. Once you have all this together along with the required paperwork from the seller, you will ship it all to the BATFE who will then have one of their 10 or so inspectors sit down and review it. Any little error will cause it to be rejected and sent back. This is where the frustration begins as the wait starts. It generally takes anywhere from 50-90 days for them to process an application. The main thing that they will be doing is running an extensive background check on you through the FBI criminal database using all your information as well as your fingerprints."

Not to mention the fact that any transferable automatic in the US will cost you an arm and a leg, it's not uncommon to see authentic M16's sell for over $16,000, well out of the range of most civilian shooters.
