Lone star college in the Houston area had a shooting today. I live right near the campus. All of the schools in the area are on lockdown.

As of right now, there have been 3 wounded. There are two suspects, only one in custody.

Not much has been confirmed at this point.

Update:

There seems to have been an altercation between two people that ended in gunfire. One person was taken to hospital due to a medical condition and a maintenance worker was injured in the crossfire shot in the leg. The maintenance worker is in stable condition.
They have gotten the suspects into custody. It is believed that both of the suspects were injured.
It is still under investigation.

There appears to be a second person in custody. Again, not confirmed right now. It's just chaos right now.

A witness is saying that there was some kind of argument between two or three people and then there were gunshots. Between 5-10 rounds. The entire campus has been evacuated.

Wow, just plain sickening!! What is wrong with people?! 

Serious question: if we stopped covering so much of these tragedies on the news and essentially making these people infamous, does anyone think they may stop this crap? I realize some may not because the confines are so much further out than just 15 minutes of fame. But I dunno.
