1 dead, 1 wounded in Texas campus shooting

One person has been killed and another wounded in a shooting at a campus apartment complex at Texas Southern University in Houston, police say, adding that one possible suspect has been detained.

Houston police said Friday's 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.
