Video: Three People Injured in Shooting at Lone Star College in Houston

Three people were injured today during a shooting at Lone Star College in Houston, Texas at about 12:50 p.m. CST, reports KHOU-TV.

The shooting happened during an argument between a student and another man. Both ended up with gunshot wounds (video below).

The gunman shot the man he was arguing with, then accidentally shot himself in the buttocks.

One of them shot and wounded a maintenance man, who was an innocent bystander.

At about 2:15 p.m. CST the suspected gunman turned himself in at Northwest Medical Center with a gunshot wound, according to police.

Lone Star College has a policy against firearms on campus but does employ armed police officers. The school was placed on lockdown, but students were allowed to leave campus.

Texas Sen. Brian Birdwell (R) and 13 other Republicans recently introduced legislation that would allow individuals with concealed weapon permits to carry firearms on campus.

Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX) told KTRK-TV that students were “defenseless” during the shooting, and public colleges should decide whether or not teachers and students can carry weapons on campus.

The Lone Start College shooting in Texas is the nation’s fifth school shooting in 2013, reports KTRK-TV.
