2 Reportedly Shot near Texas Southern University as Campus is Placed on Lockdown

A Texas college campus has been placed on lockdown after two people may have been shot at a student housing complex on Friday morning.


Houston police are investigating a shooting at the Courtyard Apartments near the campus of Texas Southern University, Click 2 Houston is reporting.

“Texas Southern University has announced the campus is on lockdown following a shooting incident just moments ago,” TSU spokesperson Eva Pickens said in a statement on Friday, according to ABC 13. “Early reports indicate two shot  — conditions not known right now. The assailant is still at large. All staff are asked to remain in offices — students to remain in classrooms until further notice.”

The shooting happened at approximately 11:30 a.m. It comes on the heels of another school shooting early Friday morning on the campus of North Arizona University which left one student dead and three wounded.

It’s the third shooting on campus in the last two months, according to ABC 13. A suspect in a shooting earlier this week, 19-year-old Darios Tramain Crayton Scott, remains on the loose. In August, two people were wounded when a gunman opened fire at the same apartment complex where Friday’s attack took place, according to the station.

President Obama is expected Friday in the Oregon town where nine college students were gunned down earlier this month.
