Multiple people were shot in a shooting at Lone Star College in north Houston, Texas some time before 12:50 PM. Police are describing the incident as an altercation between two individuals, one of whom had student ID and a hand gun. Both are now in police custody and experienced gun wounds. A maintenance man was caught in the crossfire and was shot in the leg. A woman on the scene was hospitalized for a medical condition.
The Lone Star website states that the college employs armed police officers and unarmed security guards. Five days ago, Texas Sen. Brian Birdwell (R) and 13 other Republican authors introduced legislation that would allow individuals with concealed weapon permits to carry firearms on campus. The measure failed in the last legislative session, but is now up for debate in the aftermath of the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
Responding to todays incident, Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX) told KTRKs Ted Oberg that students were defenseless during the shooting and said that public colleges should decide whether or not teachers and students can carry weapons on campus.
KTRK reports that the Lone Start shooting in Texas is the nations 5th school shooting in 2013. The U.S. experienced 49 shootings since Columbine in 1999.
