One person was killed and another was wounded in a shooting on the Texas Southern University campus Friday, according to Houston police.
It happened at student housing in the 3400 block of Blodgett.
Three suspects approached the victims in the parking lot and opened fire. TSU President John Rudley said the student who died was a freshman. His name has not been released.
"He was a beautiful young man trying to get his life together," Rudley said. "I wish he was still here."
Two suspects were later detained, but a third got away, according to HPD spokesperson Jody Silva. All of them are TSU students, according to Rudley. He believes guns are too easily accessible.
"This is becoming too regular," he said.
The campus was put on lockdown and Friday's classes were canceled. The lockdown was lifted Friday afternoon.
The shooting happened at the same student housing complex where another person was shot overnight. That victim was treated and released.
