Harris County Sheriff's Maj. Armando Tello says the shooting was the result of an altercation between two people, and at least one was a student. He said a maintenance man was injured in the crossfire.

Tello said another person was taken to a hospital for medical reasons.

Both men in the dispute reportedly pulled out guns and shot at each other.

According to the station, the injured suspect was taken to an area hospital handcuffed to a stretcher, but the other one evaded authorities. Around 2:30 p.m., that suspect turned himself in at Northwest Medical Center, according to the KHOU source.

The Lone Star College System has an enrollment of 90,000 students and six campuses, according to its website.
