Report: Multiple people shot at Lone Star College in Houston, Texas; Update: Two in custody, maintenance man hurt by stray fire

Students are being evacuated after at least two people were reportedly shot at Lone Star College.

Our thoughts are with the victims and their loved ones.





The shooting may have stemmed from an altercation between two men.

We will continue to monitor this story and update with developments.



The Houston Chronicle’s Ericka Mellon passes along the most recent updates from the¬†Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

A federal investigator had said earlier that the fourth person hurt was not shot but rather suffered a heart attack during the incident.

Celebrity gossip hound Perez Hilton spices up the story with some gratuitous exclamation points.

    And all too predictably @markos was quick with his take:

      Surprised he’d interrupt his celebration of the “harmless”, good ol’ American freedom of abortion, which has it 40th deathday today.

    • Lord Foggybottom

      Fuck that guy.

        This from someone who a few hours after the shooting happened was musing about how it’s Obama’s fault?

  • Lord Foggybottom

    Anybody else notice this seems to be happening more frequently under Obama’s watch? Could it have something to do with people feeling frustrated by the state of the state? Hmmm….

      It might be something like Fast & Furious; orchestrated, designed, and pushed by this government to rally support for their Anti-Gun Agenda? Historically, communist and tyrannical governments operate the same way in justifying confiscation of firearms. This is eerily so similar to what other tyrants do. Police should start investigating possible incitement of psychologically imbalanced individuals to snap or the possibility of being framed and manipulated. Most of the cases of recent shooting involved initial reporting of second individual, yet somehow every second person reportedly involved just conveniently disappeared from any follow up investigation. This is getting curiouser and curiouser! How far did and would Eric Holder and Obama will go to brainwash, fool, and manipulate the whole nation? I won’t be surprise to hear involvement of communist and Progressive organizations, in planning of this plot. They better watch out of over playing their hands, as they will surely get burnt, people are not all that stupid all of the time.

      The threat of tyranny had never been this great.

      Anybody else notice that less people seem to be dying from terrorism in the US under Obama’s watch than GWB’s? Could it have something to do with people not wanting to do us as much harm under Obama than under GWB?

      Two can play that silly game.

        You mean besides the innocent people Obama is busy drone-bombing?

      • Lord Foggybottom

        Actually, under Obama the attempted attacks are at an all time high. They’ve just been thwarted. Nice try.

        Also, the largest terrorist attack this country has ever seen was planned during Clinton’s watch. Again, nice try.

          “Attempted attacks” is debatable; like trying to prove a negative.¬† Body count, not so much.

      • jgeorgia2000

        Oh that’s right all the people killed and wounded at Ft Hood were by a crazy worker shouting Muslim praise for his god not a terrorist. And I recall a large number of thawed attempts the last for years. But unless their successful they don’t count. I get it now!

        • Whirlwinder

          thwarted attempts, perhaps

          Compare the number of people in the US killed by terrorist attacks in GWB’s 1st term vs. BHO’s 1st term.

    This shooting was mostly from a gang related. There is a reason to keep your guns for protection. I still love Texas, Thank God he was caught.;)
