(Newser) – Three people at a Houston-area college were wounded in a campus shooting today, reports KHOU. The TV station says two men got into an argument at Lone Star College, pulled out guns, and started shooting at each other. Both are now reportedly in custody. It appears that two bystanders and one of the shooters were the three who got shot. A fourth person suffered a heart attack, reports AP.

The Houston Chronicle takes note of a Twitter exchange between someone at CNN and a young woman who was stuck in a classroom when the shooting began. The girl first tweeted to ask someone to call her mom and let her know she was OK.

  • CNN tweet: "do you have any pictures of what's going on at the school to share with CNN?"
  • Her response: "no because I didn't think to take pictures while I thought my life was in jeopardy."
