Updates will appear below
[Updated at, 2:02 p.m. ET] Students at a Lone Star College campus in Houston have been asked to take shelter after reports of a gunman on campus, a school spokesman said.

More than 10,000 students are at the North Harris campus of Lone Star College, spokesman Jed Young said.

[Initial post, 1:50 p.m. ET] A shooting has been reported at a Lone Star College campus in Houston, Texas, CNN affiliates KTRK and KPRC reported.

Footage from KPRC showed a large number of law enforcement personnel on campus, and at least two people being wheeled on gurneys toward ambulances.

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A campus spokesperson has confirmed shots have been fired on the campus of Lone Star College in north Houston.

Emergency responders are focused in the area around the campus library. Some students can be seen running from the building. A number of officers are turning their attention to the cafeteria. There is no immediate word on the shooter.

A student told Eyewitness News she heard five shots, and they sounded as if they occurred outside, in an area between the library and the cafeteria.

There are unconfirmed reports of three people injured. Medical crews could be seen tending to at least two victims outside the building. Their conditions are not known, nor the nature of their injuries. At least one person is being taken by ground ambulance to Ben Taub Hospital.

The campus is being evacuated. Buses have been brought in to remove students from the area. Some students are telling Eyewitness News they heard gunshots when they were in cafeteria. They were told to leave campus.

Campus spokesperson Vicki Cassidy says there is a shelter in place at the North Campus.

Aldine ISD has four campuses near Lone Star on lockdown. Dunn Elementary, Parker Intermediate and Nimitz 9th grade campus and Nimitz HS campus are all being secured. Their police chief is monitoring the situation.

The Harris County Sheriff's Office is on the scene, as well as other law enforcement agencies.

Is this campus a gun free zone? If so how did a gun end up on campus grounds?

Nope it's to take all guns away, because the criminals will follow that law!

What is the big deal ? College campuses are like small cities with 5k, 10, 20k, people.

If someone in a small town gets shot it's no big deal. But if someone guest shot on a college campus it gets national attention.

Residents of a town are allowed to carry guns, students are not (on most campuses).

Now they are saying it is gang related........but they will still blame guns, not gangs, the breakdown of family values or illegal immigration (which accounts for a lot of crime in Texas).

6 shots went off so this could have been avoided if it took place in NY due to the new magazine restriction. Oh wait.
