(CNN) -- Students at a community college in Houston are taking shelter after reports of a gunman on campus.
Multiple people have been shot at the North Harris Campus of Lone Star College, CNN affiliate KPRC reported, citing law enforcement.
There were more than 10,000 students at the campus, a school spokesman said.
Police and emergency responders swarmed an entrance to the campus, aerial video from KPRC showed.
Medical personnel were seen treating at least two people and moving them to ambulances. Students were jogging away from some buildings, with their hands up in the air, presumably in response to police instruction.
One student, speaking to CNN affiliate KTRK, reported hearing five gunshots outside a breezeway between a cafe and a library.
Another witness told KTRK he saw blood on the ground and someone shot in the leg.
"Beside him, there was one guy in handcuffs," he said.
"I just heard somebody screaming and then after that I heard the shots," another student told KPRC.
It was not immediately clear whether any arrests had been made or a gunman remained on the loose.
A Harris County Sheriff's deputy told KTRK one suspect was in custody.
Lone Star College spokesman Jed Young could only confirm that there were reports of a shooter on campus.
The Lone Star College system is the largest institution of higher education in the Houston area, and the fastest-growing community college system in Texas, according to its website.
There are 10 shootings A DAY in Chicago...repulsive, leftist Central headquarters. It is a 1,000 times safer to be on a college campus then in Chicago central that has the toughest laws in the land. So why does Obama think we would be safer if congress would pass more gun control laws?
If the altercation did not meet criteria for the valid use of firearms, then the shooters should go to jail and lose firearm privileges. If Hoozdik is an idiot and shoots 7,000 arrows at an apple on Beyoncé's head I'm fine with you taking away his weapon because he has shown that he is irresponsible and abusive in using a bow, but no one else should suffer for his stupidity and have ther weapons confiscated even if it can shoot 7,000 arrows.
