Two suspects have been taken into custody after three people were wounded during a school shooting at the North Harris Campus of Lone Star College on Jan. 22. School officials confirm that classes will resume on Jan. 23 — just one day later.

Two suspects were led away in handcuffs from the North Harris Campus in Lone Star College, TX, after a school shooting. Students took shelter after two gunmen appeared on campus on Jan. 22, and three people — including the shooter — were wounded. An argument occurred between two students in the college library, which resulted in the gunfire. Both suspects are now in custody, CNN affiliates KHOU and KTRK report. HollywoodLife.com confirmed that two people received treatment from medical personnel before being taken to hospital, and a fourth person suffered from a heart attack at the scene.

The Shooting At Lone Star College Library

The shooting occurred after an argument between two people, and it happened in the school library. One shooter was injured and was taken into police custody, while the other shooter fled the scene into the nearby woods. He has since been located and taken into police custody.

The Reason For The Shooting

An unidentified student who says she witnessed some of the shooting told CNN affiliate KHOU that an argument between two people preceded the gunfire.

One of the shooters, she said, told someone: “I don’t want to fight you; I’m not trying to go to jail.” She said the shooter “actually turned away from the situation” at first but eventually pulled a gun out of a backpack. She said she heard about nine shots.

“I think it was a bunch of crap that could’ve been resolved and never should have gone that far,” the witness said.

Eye Witness Account

A freshman named Amanda Vasquez was in a classroom near the library during the shooting, and she told CNN what happened:

“I was in the academic building, waiting for English class to start. I heard about six shots, and kids started rushing down the hallway. A few came into our class. It really happened so fast,” she said.

Amanda hid under a table during the ordeal, and she believes that the shooting may have happened in the hallway near the library.

“I called my mom to (let her know) I was OK (and that) I loved her, just in case anything was going to happen,” Amanda said. “… At first she didn’t believe me … but I kept telling her it’s happening and need you to call the cops.”

The college and surrounding schools remain on lockdown, but the danger has been mitigated.

Lone Star College Campus To Re-open Tomorrow

UPDATE: The Harris County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that classes at the campus will resume Wednesday, Jan. 22 — just one day following the shooting. In a statement, Sheriff Adrian Garcia said, “I’m grateful no one was killed in this local incident. I’m grateful Lone Star College will be able to re-open tomorrow. I’m grateful for the response by our personnel and other emergency responders to this frightening act. But gratefulness is no cause for complacency in the future.”

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you glad to hear the danger has been mitigated?

I believe what you said made a lot of sense. However, consider this, what if you composed a catchier post title?
I ain’t saying your content is not good., but what if you added a title that grabbed a person’s attention?
I mean Texas School Shooting Suspects Arrested – 2 In Custody
After Campus Shootout – Hollywood Life is a little vanilla.
You should peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news headlines to grab viewers to click. You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve got to say.
In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
