Yeah does not make sense, most of the gang members i see around the area can barely put clothes on properly let alone try to learn anything. Maybe the mistake the place for the Greens Point mall. I do know there are a lot of idiots in that area. One of the reasons i left was because one night my wife and i heard gun shots, really close. I was like damn that sound like a 9mm or similar hand gun. I did the stupid thing looked out the window and saw/heard some little kids, i'd say from 9-14, running through the apartment parking lot, one brandishing the hand gun. 2 weeks later we moved....

Yeah place is pretty #ty, i don't expect to much from the caliber of society that sustains life there.

Interesting that they're reporting on a second shooter. This is not the usual cnn game plan (well it is, if they suddenly retract that statement). So will they keep the second shooter in the story or not?

At least three shot at Texas college (PHOTOS) Published: 22 January, 2013, 22:56 Officials in Houston, Texas say that several people have been shot at a local community college. Lone Star College's North Harris campus is on lock-down Tuesday afternoon after a gun fight reportedly broke out between two individuals. Authorities were alerted by a 911 call at 12:31 pm local time and have since descended on the school and have detained one suspect, reported by MSNBC to be a student at the school. Another person of interest, a black male estimated to be between 18 and 20 years old, was seen fleeing the area, KPRC News reports. Jed Young, executive director of a school affiliated with the campus, tells CNN that the two suspects are thought to have fired shots at one another, catching passersby in the crossfire. One witness, student Amanda Vasquez, tells CNN that she counted around six shots. Additionally, the network reports that agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have arrived on the scene to assist with local authorities. The school has since ordered a bulletin that reads, “Students, Faculty and Staff are advised to take immediate shelter where you are. Do not enter the campus until notified further.” As a precaution, other schools in the area have been locked down. Eyewitnesses tell KTRK News that several gunshots were around 12 noon outside of a classroom. At least three people were wounded in the crossfire and a fourth suffered a heart attack, CNN reports. According to ABC13, however, two of the victim has suffered “multiple gunshot wounds” and are in serious condition and were taken to a local hospital. The one suspect that was detained has also reportedly suffered injuries. "We know that shots have been fired and we are in a shelter-in-place situation on the campus," said Vicki Cassidy, manager of media relations for Lone Star College System, tells the Houston Chronicle. "It's a pretty chaotic scene at this point in time."

A friend of a friend was there and saw the shooting. He said two dudes started arguing and then both took out guns and starting shooting. He said they looked like they were a part of a gang. After several shots were fired he ran out. This isn't a mass shooting. That area has plenty of gang violence. I haven't really kept up with whatever the media is reporting because this stuff is just getting old. Ugh.

The MSM really needs to tone down on how they broadcast this type of news.
If they would not aggrandize these events, they would die down to pre-Sandy Brooke levels.
Obviously there is some sort of impetuous driving the media to sensationalize every gun mishap and shooting.

I suppose one of shooters could have been in school or hangs around because of friends there and this other guy couldn't wait until tonight to settle a score. My bet is on an argument over a girl friend or drugs.

Mentally ill murderer gets weapons permit and buys arsenal of guns

Nearly 20 years after he was convicted of shooting his own mother to death, Christian Oberender of Minnesota is back behind bars for illegally owning a small arsenal of firearms.

Authorities became reacquainted with Oberender, now 32, late last year when a complaint was filed by someone who came across his Facebook page. When authorities examined the social networking account, they found photos of just a sampling of the man’s extensive gun collection.

But upon first glance, the Carver County Sheriff’s Office didn’t see anything to spur intervention. An initial investigation found that there were no “disqualifiers” that would have prevented Oberender from owning any guns, Carver County Chief Deputy Jason Kamerud tells the Herald-Journal. When the leading law enforcement figure in the area came across the report shortly after, though, the agency started to become concerned.

Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson had reason to question the collection of guns — 17 years earlier he worked the case in which a teenage Oberender was convicted of killing his mother.

“The sheriff was one of the detectives on the case in 1995,” Kamerud tells the paper. “He had a lot more knowledge of the case than the deputies who took the call.”

According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, a 14-year-old Oberender killed his mother with five blasts from a shotgun in 1995. Still a minor, Oberender was sentenced to an extended stay at a mental institution and was determined by officials to be mentally ill and dangerous. Just last year, however, he applied for a gun permit, had his request approved and eventually amassed a collection of over one dozen guns in under a year. The paper says Oberender had 13 guns, including semi-automatic rifles, an AK-47, shotguns and a .50-caliber Desert Eagle when police picked him up earlier this month.

Authorities also found a letter from Oberender to his late mom, believed to be written only recently, in which he writes, “I am so homicide,'' and "I think about killing all the time. The monster want out. He only been out one time and someone die.''

Oberender is currently being held by police and won’t be released unless he can post a $1 million bond or $100,000 cash. Keeping the killer locked up isn’t the only thing that has authorities worried, however. Of major concern is the question: how exactly did Oberender get cleared to collect so many weapons?

“We’re also trying to track back exactly what happened,” Olson tells the Herald-Journal, “and making sure there aren’t any others out there that are like this. It’s hard to track back exactly who, what, or why. It’s more why it was hanging out there for that long.”

Speaking to a local NBC affiliate, a spokesperson for Minnesota’s Bureau of Criminal Apprehension says they never had a record detailing Oberender’s sordid past.

"The BCA relies on entities in the criminal justice system to provide data on an individual which then populates the individual's criminal history. There were no data submitted to the BCA about this individual – without it there can be no record,” the statement reads.

Kamerud adds to the Herald-Journal that "any purchasing of guns by him was never legal but it was possible because the disqualifiers weren't in place." The Star Tribune reports that the BCA couldn’t find a fingerprint card from the 1995 murder case and no case disposition was ever filed.

Oberender, who has been diagnosed with serious mental illness and “potential schizophrenia,” is being held on a charge of being a felon in possession of firearms. The Star-Tribune adds that at least 84 people in the state of Minnesota have been charged since 2000 with illegal gun possession or assault with a dangerous weapon even after being committed by a judge as mentally ill.

Personally, I think Americans are decent people. I just die a little every time I hear 'school shooting' and sure enough, yep it's another American killing children with legally bought guns.

Wow, are you privy to some information that the rest of us are not? Because nothing in this statement sounds like anything that is going on in Houston today. How do you know the guns are legal? I haven't heard of any "children" dying? You must know exactly what happened at the community college today? Please, inform us on the exact nature of the situation, kind sir........

Ohhh! A .50 caliber Desert Eagle!!!!

It sounds SO ominous!!! I guess the thought process is that the average reader won't know that it's just a pistol....
Or, that the journalist themselves had no clue, and just thought it sounded scary!!!

Gangs are the biggest part of the gun violence. You don't here that spoken of much. Too much to report, it would take the whole news cast.

I 100% agree. I also think that MSM should be fined or something when they report something that ends up being untrue or an exaggeration with the purpose of better ratings. Some way to keep them in check and from being able to lie to push their agenda.


That is much more balanced and reasonable.

Fines or indictments for false representations or lies.
We need room to allow for honest mistakes though so evidence of foul play will be needed.
Wont be hard to prove half the time since there are paper trails.

200 gangs in Houston and 20,000 gang members. More than any other city in TX.

So, could it be that: 1) THE SHOOTERS WERE NOT MENTALLY ILL (this does not mean insane); 2) THERE IS NO LONE WOLF GUNMAN; and 3) THEY PURCHASED THE WEAPONS ILLEGALLY; and 4) THEY HAD FELONIES SO THEY COULDN'T BUY ARMS LEGALLY.

PLZ people, if this is the case, let's focus on the problem. WHICH IS NOT SSRI's (they are placebos), NOT MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES, and NOT A LEGALLY PURCHASED WEAPON USED.

In the end, the 2nd amendment and America bashers WILL EAT CROW ON THIS ONE!!!!!!!!!!

And sadly, if it is gang violence, the memory of this event will be forgotten in 3 days.

this is NOT the real Texas, this is EAST Texas, full of liberals and hippies and such, how do I know this. I lived there.
I moved to WEST Texas 5 years ago it's lovely quiet and peaceful LDS is down the road and they stay to themselves for the most part.

Not much crime here, a few B&E's no shoot outs, Folks are nice and help each other out. east of 35 is a lot different then west of 35 (excluding Austin, it's just weird and proud of it)

You keep guns around for shooting rattle snakes here, it's NOT an option ( even with the drought ) and you have to shake out your boots (shoes) in the morning in case a baby scorpion crawled in them.

Don't think all of Texas is the same.

Im guessing this is either a gang-related shooting, or a drug deal gone bad. This isnt one of those mass shootings.

Im hearing that the 2nd shooter has turned himself in just now.

When did a shoot out between two individuals become categorized as a mass shooting? I first saw this story online detailing that two people were having an argument then proceeded to open fire on each other, it has also been being reported of gang involvement, but yet turn on any news station and all you see in bold caps is "MASS SCHOOL SHOOTING!" It has become painfully obvious that there is an agenda being played here and thankfully most Americans are seeing it. I don't know how gangs work in Texas but up here in New York they're not going to a local store to buy guns legally so I don't see how this story can turn into a Gun Control debate but I'm sure the MSM will find a way.
