Both gunfighters have been taken into custody CNN affiliates KHOU and KTRK report.

An unidentified Lone Star College student who says she witnessed some of the shooting told CNN affiliate KHOU that an argument between two people preceded the gunfire.

A gunman, she said, told someone: "I don't want to fight you; I'm not trying to go to jail."

The witness appeared to reference only one gunman; it wasn't clear whether she saw a second gunman. She said he "actually turned away from the situation" at first but eventually pulled a gun out of a backpack. She said she heard about nine shots.

"I think it was a bunch of crap that could've been resolved and never should have gone that far," the witness said.

The situation would have been obviously better if all the bystanders were armed.
