(HOUSTON) — At least two people are injured following a shooting on the campus of Lone Star College in north Houston.
ABC News Radio affiliate KROI reports that at least two people were shot during Tuesday’s incident. The victims have been taken to a local hospital and are in serious condition, according to KTRK-TV.
Police have one person in custody and they are pursuing a second person related to the shooting, according to KROI. Authorities are said to be searching for a man about 6-foot-2 wearing an Atlanta Falcons hat.
A message posted on the school’s website said, “LSC-North Harris is under a shelter in place. Students, Faculty and Staff are advised to take immediate shelter where you are.”
Emergency reponders are currently on campus.
The shooting comes only a month after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., in which 20 students and six staff members were shot, sparking a wave of attempted copycat crimes in states like California and Indiana.
The Connecticut shooting inspired calls from government officials including President Obama for stricter gun control laws.
