HOUSTON (AP) - Authorities say the shooting at a Texas community college was the result of an altercation between two people, and at least one was a student.
Harris County Sheriff's Maj. Armando Tello says both people involved in the altercation were wounded and hospitalized. He says a college maintenance man was injured in the crossfire and also taken to a hospital.
Tello says a female who had a student ID also was hospitalized for a medical complication.
The shooting happened before 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Lone Star College System campus about 20 miles north of downtown Houston.
One student says he had just left a class in which he is studying to be a paramedic when he saw two people who were injured, and stopped to help them. He says they had "just minor injuries."
The shooting prompted the school to issue an alert on its website, telling students and faculty to take immediate shelter or avoid the campus.
