KHOU.com - There are unconfirmed reports that at least three people were shot... one male being brought out of the library on a stretcher... Other crews were entering the library with stretchers, as students filed out.
The only thing campus officials can confirm is that the school is on lockdown.

Bet it’s another student loan rep who got shot after one of the students he helped bury in student loans for a worthless degree finally figured out what had been done to him.

Here we go again. Most likely another registered Democrat who hopes to be all over TV just like the libs did for other recent mass murderers.

The possession of firearms, illegal knives and prohibited knives on System facilities including parking areas and publicly accessed facilities is a violation of criminal law and Board policies.

Perhaps “reporters” can start to cover with such diligence all of the “shots fired” in gang-controlled cities across this country. Of course, that would take some bravery and possibly even a little military-embed training.....

Phone witness student to KHOU Live:

Stopped to give aid to 2 who were shot. One happened to be one of the shooters. Described this ‘downed’ shooter as a Black student.

‘Downed’ shooter did not have a weapon. [hmmm. What happened to this shooter’s weapon?]

Shooting took place in Admin Building. One shooter retreated to Library.

Shooting at Lone Star College in north Houston

Emergency responders are focused in the area around the campus library. Some students can be seen running from the building. A number of officers are turning their attention to the cafeteria. There is no immediate word on the shooter.

A student told Eyewitness News she heard five shots, and they sounded as if they occurred outside, in an area between the library and the cafeteria. Other students say they heard gunshots when they were in cafeteria.

There are unconfirmed reports of three people injured. Medical crews could be seen tending to at least three victims outside the building. Their conditions are not known, nor the nature of their injuries. At least one person is being taken by ground ambulance to Ben Taub Hospital.

Some portions of campus are being evacuated, and other students are being instructed to shelter in place. Campus spokesperson Vicki Cassidy says there is a shelter in place at the North Campus.

Aldine ISD has four campuses near Lone Star on lockdown. Dunn Elementary, Parker Intermediate and Nimitz 9th grade campus and Nimitz HS campus are all being secured. Their police chief is monitoring the situation.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office is on the scene, as well as other law enforcement agencies.

We have multiple crews on the way to the scene. Stay with ABC13 Eyewitness News for the latest on this developing story.

It seems there have been a spate of public shootings lately that fit nicely with Obama’s agenda to keep the public stirred up. Is it random copycat stuff or I wonder if Democrat sleeper cells are being activated?

FOX News just had my old 1/75 Ranger Company Commander on talking about the shooting.
He used to be SAIC of the Houston FBI after the Ranger days, and is a Fox news ‘expert’ they have on occasionally.

There is too much of these mass shooting going on in a short time for there to be anything but ‘tin hat’ conspiracy stuff involved.

KHOU 11 News stringer Lloyd Overcash saw one male being brought out of the library on a stretcher. He was reportedly handcuffed to the stretcher, according to witnesses.

At least one woman was being treated by EMS crews outside the library when Air 11 flew over.

Got email from friend. Friend’s son is at work. Friend is trying to call him to tell him what happened. She thanked me for letting her know. She knows I watch the news all day.

Once I saw a tornado on the ground not far from where her parents live around Dallas. Sent her emergency email and she called parents to tell them to protect themselves. Her father later told her to thank me for warning them.

It seems hard to believe that younger males could be THAT into democrat idealism to shoot up places and themselves like this. I guess anything is possible though.

These look like weasel words, but I'm not sufficiently familiar with the laws of Texas to be sure. IOW, it looks like they're banning them when they know they can't. Don't know.

See my post that he is okay. Friend is the one who is Vice-Chair of state Texas Repubican Pary.

I wonder if the shooter in cafeteria has been stopped.

One report is that two students (?) got into a gunfight, one was shot plus two bystanders. Other shooter escaped, possibly into the library.

Obama’s people shooting up a campus? Does not meet the meme that this is all the action of white youth only.

The media may have to hold off on national coverage of this story. And one of multiple shooters was shot? By whom? “Friendly fire” or defensive shooter?

Another son of Obummer. Check the trash cans along the route and they'll find the tricked out Glock version of an AK-497 automatic military assault mass assault weapon with a large magazine and night vision scope. Better send in the bomb squad's robot to retrieve it because you never know when those things will suddenly go boom! Check the parking lot for evil SUVs. Hey, you know the msm will twist this all around and hussein will blame the gun grabbers. Prayers for the victims. Looks like at least two white males on stretchers.

It wont..the second the media finds out these were two black students who got into a fight and whipped out their pieces they will drop this story..now if the shooter had been white they would have been all over it..but since the shooter was black you won’t hear a peep..they will treat this like they treat shootings in Chicago

There is too much of these mass shooting going on in a short time for there to be anything but ‘tin hat’ conspiracy stuff involved.

Remember, Oboma is a professional AGITATOR. His administration is full of them. People are being "nudged" by this administration to act out.
His target is right wing organizations or supporters, but the only ones acting out are registered democrats or the children of registered democrats so far. The right wing is holding it's cool.
Because the right isn't reacting the way Oboma is trying to AGITATE them into reacting (so he can use their anger against them) , he's going to start pushing - "nudging", poking, prodding, - even harder than he is now. Prepare for it, and "stand down. " Do not allow him to get under your skin. If anyone is going to kill, let it continue to be HIS people - not ours!
