One dead in Texas campus shooting, suspect held

AFP , Friday 9 Oct 2015

One person was killed and another wounded on Friday in a shooting at a campus apartment complex at Texas Southern University in Houston, police said, adding that one possible suspect had been detained.

Houston police said the incident "does not involve an active shooter," but the university nonetheless placed the campus on lockdown and cancelled classes for the rest of the day.

The morning shooting came just hours after one student killed another student in a "confrontation" at an Arizona university that left three others with multiple gunshot wounds.

It was the third shooting either on or near the campus in the past two months and the second shooting at this particular complex, KTRX News reported.
