This frame grab provided by KPRC Houston shows the scene at Lone Star College Tuesday, as police and emergency personnel work.
Three people have been wounded in a shooting on a Texas community college campus.
The incident sent students fleeing for safety as administrators placed the campus on lockdown, officials said.
Harris County Sheriff's Major Armando Tello said authorities had detained a person of interest.
Authorities also thought there could be a second shooter, according to a law enforcement official in Washington who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the ongoing case.
Aerial footage from local television stations showed police cars and ambulances parked on the Lone Star College System campus about 20 miles north of downtown Houston.
Emergency personnel could be seen tending to people on stretchers, while others ran from a building led by officers.
The Harris County Sheriff's Office had no immediate details, but college spokesman Jed Young confirmed the campus was put on lock down following reports of a shooter.
The college issued an alert on its website telling students and faculty to take immediate shelter or avoid the campus.
Melinda Muse, spokeswoman for the Harris County Health System, said two people were taken to Harris Health Ben Taub Hospital Emergency Center following the shooting.
