HOUSTON — Officials say a student was killed during a shooting outside a Texas Southern University student housing complex, and that two people have been detained for questioning.

University President John Rudley says the student was a freshman at the school. The student’s name, age and gender haven’t been released.

Houston police spokeswoman Jodi Silva says the other person who was shot is hospitalized in stable condition. That person’s name and condition also haven’t been released.

Silva says the shooting happened in a parking lot outside the University Courtyard Apartments, which is on the edge of the school’s Houston campus. She says two people have now been detained, but that a motive remains unclear. She says a third person is being sought for questioning, but that there is no active shooting investigation.

Rudley says the school is no longer on lockdown and classes will resume Monday.


In the last week, there have been two shootings at other campuses in the United States.

Nine people were killed at Umpqua Community College in Oregon on October 1 and one person was killed at Northern Arizona University earlier on Friday.
