(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."

The gun is still the problem, who cares if the would have beat on each other?

I'm glad to see the gun violence prevalent among our youth, and especially the black population, is finally getting National news attention. This incident was a conflict between two young black men, one pulled a gun and shot at the other wounding him, himself and a janitor who was standing nearby. No word yet on why he didn't use an assault rifle.

This is a non story going nowhere when one learns the facts. No gun control measure know outside of conficating all 300 MM guns would stop a Texas gun fight between two rival gang members...ya know. Yep, learn the story to find those hands guns were not in the grasp of two law abiding citizens. As all NRA members know the bad will always own guns when the good relinquish theirs. Like I said, this is a non story soon to fade because no gun control as now being formulated will stop this sort of gun fight....FACT!
