At least two students were shot at Lone Star College in Texas this afternoon.

According to Jed Young, a spokesman for the school, the shooting “involving two individuals” took place shortly before 12:30 p.m. local time. Two students were shot in the crossfire, the spokesman said, and at least one of the suspected shooters was shot and taken into custody. The extent of their injuries were not known. A second shooter fled the campus, the spokesman said.

It’s unclear if the shooters were students at the school.

An alert posted on the school’s website shortly before 2 p.m. ET warned students to take shelter.

“LSC-North Harris is locked down,” the alert read. “Students, faculty and staff are advised to take immediate shelter where you are. Do not enter the campus until notified further.”

Aerial footage showed SWAT team members evacuating students several buildings on the campus in North Harris County near Houston as police searched a wooded area on campus.

In interviews with local media outlets, students described a chaotic scene. A female student told KTRK-TV heard five shots fired in an area between the library and the cafeteria. Other students say they heard gunshots when they were in cafeteria.

The Lone Star College System has a total enrollment of more than 90,000 students across six campuses, according to its website.
