Harris Co. S.O. to charge second suspect in community college shooting


HOUSTON (AP) -- Officials say charges have been filed against a second suspect in a shooting at a Houston-area community college that left three people wounded.


The Harris County sheriff's office says a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon was filed Thursday against the second suspect.


The suspect's name was not released because the person has not yet been arrested. The sheriff's office declined to comment on what role the person played in the shooting.


Officials have said at least 10 shots were fired Tuesday during a dispute between two men outside the library at Lone Star College-North Harris.


 


 


HARRIS COUNTY -- From KHOU 11 News and www.khou.com 


The Harris County Sheriff's Office said Thursday morning a second suspect will be charged in the shooting at Lone Star College.


The suspect, who was not identified by authorities, faces a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. A spokesman for the sheriff's office said the suspect is not yet in custody.


The first suspect, Carlton Berry, remained hospitalized after undergoing surgery for his wounds. Authorities said Berry accidentally shot himself in the buttocks when he tried to put his gun back in his pants.


Witnesses told KHOU 11 News that Tuesday's shooting was the result of an altercation between two male students on the campus of Lone Star College - North Harris County.


Aside from Berry, a male student was shot along with a male maintenance worker. A fourth person was sent to the hospital after suffering a medical emergency.


The shooting led to a campus lockdown and two-hour search for the gunman, who got away. Several nearby Aldine ISD schools were also put on lockdown as a precaution.


Some students later complained about the school's response time, claiming they received text message alerts nearly 30 minutes after the incident occurred. The school, however, said campus police were on the scene within a minute of the shooting and warnings were sent out via web, e-mail, and text shortly after.
