Shooting Reported at Lone Star College in Texas

Sheriff’s deputies were responding to reports that shots were fired at a Houston-area community college with multiple people wounded.

NBC station KPRC-TV reported that investigators were working to determine if there was an active shooter on the North Harris campus of Lone Star College. 

Live aerial video taken by the station showed emergency crews moving two people on stretchers into ambulances. Dozens of police vehicles were visible. 

Police officers in SWAT gear were shown on the video entering buildings on the campus. It was unclear how many people were injured or if the people seen on the stretchers had been shot. At least one person has been detained at the college, deputy constables told KPRC, but they did not say if that person was suspected of shooting anyone. Deputies were also searching for another possible suspect who fled the scene.

This just makes me sick.  Is it me, or are there more and more of these shootings taking place lately?  It seems like there is a new one each week. :( 

I hope they find the person responsible and that there are no fatalities.
