Four people were critically injured during the incident at the Cy-Fair campus of Lone Star College in Harris County, the Cy-Fair volunteer fire department said.

One suspect was detained, local police said.

“LOCKDOWN at LSC-CyFair. Seek shelter now. If away, stay away,” the school posted on Twitter at noon local time.

Three people were shot at a separate campus of Lone Star College in January.
