22 year old charged after Lone Star College shooting

HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

Classes will resume this morning at the North Harris campus of Lone Star College after a shooting that injured 3 people.  A fourth person suffered a medical problem.

22-year old Carlton Berry was charged overnight with aggravated assault and remains in the hospital after shooting himself in the butt.

The mug shot released by the Harris County Sheriff's Office is from a previous arrest back in 2009 for theft and possession of marijuana.

The shooting at Lone Star College happened Tuesday around 12:15 p.m. in the 2700 block of WW Thorne Drive.

Deputies are investigating after a shooting erupted at a Lone Star College campus in North Harris County, wounding four people and drawing national attention.

The shooting happened just after noon Tuesday on the LSC campus in the 2700 block of WW Thorne Drive.

Prior to the shooting, two males, one of them was Berry, were having an argument in the central courtyard of the campus, the Harris County Sheriff's Office said.  Their identities are not known, but at least one of them was armed and one was found to be carrying a student ID card.

That argument erupted in gunfire, wounding both and a bystander, a maintenance worker in his mid-50s.  All three were taken to local hospitals.

A fourth victim, a female, was taken to a local hospital for unknown medical problems.  The maintenance worker was shot in the leg and is listed in stable condition.

Both males were treated for their injuries and are under armed guard by deputies.  Criminal charges are pending.

The campus was evacuated after the shooting.  Four nearby Aldine ISD schools were placed under precautionary lockdown because of the shooting:

-- Nimitz 9th Grade campus
-- Nimitz High school
-- Dunn Elementary
-- Parker Intermediate

The students are reportedly safe.  HCSO sent extra patrols to those schools as a precaution.

An all-clear notice was given for the LSC campus around 3:40 p.m.  An LSC spokesman said in the rush of evacuating, some students left their personal belongings on campus.  He said they are now welcome to return and claim them.

Classes are expected to resume again on Wednesday.

During a press conference, LSC Chancellor Richard Carpenter, PhD., said Tuesday's events were a first in the 40-year history of the LSC System.

SkyFOX aerial images caught paramedics, SWAT teams and other law enforcement officials at the campus.  Some people were seen being handcuffed and led away by officers at the scene.  It is not known why they were being detained.

Information on the persons-of-interest in the case and the victims is expected to be released on Wednesday.  Check back with FOX 26 News and MyFoxHouston.com for up-to-date details on this story.
