School Shooting At Lone Star College Sends Four To Hospital
Four people were hospitalized after gunfire broke out at Lone Star College, a community college in Houston, on Tuesday. The shooting, which was the result of two men arguing on the college’s North Harris campus, was reported around 12:20 p.m., and initially the student body didn’t perceive the gunshots as a threat.
“We thought it was fireworks, so we didn’t go anywhere,” Joshua Flores, 21, told the The NY Times. “And then a bunch of people came running our way, yelling: ‘The guy has a gun! Run! Run!’ ”
One woman was hospitalized after she collapsed during the event. It was her second school shooting; she had previously experienced the Virginia Tech tragedy in 2007.
Carlton Berry, who is believed to be the man who shot the gun and subsequently shot himself in the hip, is currently being hospitalized and has been charged with aggravated assault, the Houston Chronicle reports.
