— A fight between two people led to a shooting at a Texas community college, where a maintenance man was caught in the crossfire and wounded, officials said.

One of the people involved in the fight was a student, and both people were wounded and hospitalized, Harris County Sheriff’s Maj. Armando Tello said. A fourth person, a woman with a student ID, also was taken to a hospital for a medical condition, he said.

The shooting that happened before 1 p.m. sent students scurrying for safety on the Lone Star College System campus about 20 miles north of downtown Houston. Some barricaded themselves in the rooms they were in, while others fled to nearby buildings.

Mark Zaragosa said he had just come out of an EMT class when he saw two people who were injured and stopped to help them. Officers had not yet arrived, he said.

“The two people that I took care of had just minor injuries,” Zaragosa told KHOU. “One gentleman had a gunshot to the knee and the (other) actually had an entry wound to the lower buttocks area.”

Richard Carpenter, chancellor of the Lone Star College System, said the shooting happened outside between an academic building and the library.
