Faculty and students being advised to shelter in place. Reports coming in that one person might be in custody, and a hunt for a second suspect is underway. All this is unconfirmed information.

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas -- At least two people have been shot at Lone Star Community in North Harris County, according to Precinct 4 deputy constables.

One person is in custody. Dozens of law enforcement officers are searching for a second suspect on the loose. A reporter for KVUE's sister station KHOU saw one male being brought out of the library on a stretcher. At least one other person was being treated by EMS crews outside the library when KHOU's helicopter flew over.

Other crews were entering the library with stretchers as students filed out. The only thing campus officials could confirm is that the school is on lockdown. Several Aldine ISD schools are also on lockdown while the search for the suspect continues.

They are Nimitz High School, Nimitz 9th Grade Campus, Parker Intermediate and Dunn Clifford Elementary.

I hope this is not another mass shooting, and the suspect was able to be stopped before anyone was seriously injured or worse. Will be updating as information becomes available.

Wondering why this keeps happening, and why people are all the sudden starting to snap? This is starting to become a regular occurrence which is not good. My question is why schools?

Being reported that they were shot in the legs? Why would someone aim specifically for someones legs?

I don't think this is anything sudden... it has been always happening but media is just focused on that more now... current trend is shooting, which would give high ratings.

It's really simple... It's the way we treat each other. Period. If we cared about one another it would never get to this point.

Why the schools? Because getting to peoples children is what will make them sacrifice their freedoms, IF you can make them believe that sacrificing those freedoms will save their children.

Which of course it wont, but as long as you can make them believe it will, they will sacrifice anything.

I think that the MSM has sensationalized this to the point of copycat killers. They watch it at home and see how much attention they would get. Which is exactly what the are after.

I agree 100%.

Copy cats, etc.

The media is totally fueling this. I am absolutely convinced.

It is a shame how powerful the art of suggestion really is!

Yeah, good thing none of the law abiding citizens had any guns! THAT sure helps stop mass murders

www.itv.com...

that was the first link I googled but it seems to have several links to the shooting.


NBC affiliate KPRC reports that "multiple" people have been shot at a college in Harris County, near Houston, Texas.

Probably just another school shooting. Nothing to worry about as it's becoming part of the American tradition. Unless of course you're a parent or in the NRA.



Seriously though, you Americans need to start making decisions soon, the only country were a piece of metal is more valuable than your own children.

Am i right in saying you're considering arming teachers at school? Unbelievable.

Well considering America is up to its teeth in ammo and most people have mental health issues, surely it'd be quicker to just ban Americans.

I jest of course, and I wish all the victims the best of luck, but this is what happens when a gun-loving society filled with mentally ill people develops a superiority complex. The rest of the world just looks at this country and thinks, 'what the hell are you people doing?'.

How is it unbelievable. All these politicians in Washington have kids, and they go to schools where there is a strong armed presence. That way you wouldn't dream of pulling anything because you would get owned.

Copy cats....violent video games, pharma drugs and violent movies to reinforce and desensitize.

I just saw this as I was eating lunch. Safe to say, I'm not hungry anymore. This is just wrong how frequently I see this on the news. Although I've heard them say they've already detained one man, there is apparently another shooting on another part of the campus.
