 They are always looking for the ellusive second shooter, but they never find them.

Someone on CNN said they thought it was gang related.

it was a fight between two people, there is a "second shooter" but this shooting was rooted from an argument between two guys who use to be "friends" apparently.

So this shooting is not like the other school shootings. Local police is letting people leave the building.

I'm beginning to wonder if all schools should be made into gated communities where access is restricted. And they have to pass through a metal detector! Crazy....

Apparently two guys were fighting both pulled out guns. 3 people were hurt, one of the shooters got away

 This situation was made easier by Texas' lax gun laws. Everyone can own a gun, and you can carry concealed without too much effort legally. This is what happens when everyone is armed, and then they lose their tempers.

I found out about this on Facebook. I went to North Harris years ago as did many of my friends. One of friends was in the classroom right next to the classroom where the shooting took place! My mom works down the street from this school!

There was an 86 car pileup where I live yesterday, one lady was killed & they had to perform CPR on a child, should we ban cars? It's easier to get a drivers license than a CCP after all.
