Fight leads to gunfire on Texas college campus

HOUSTON (AP) - For students scrambling for safety after gunshots erupted in a courtyard of their college campus north of Houston, memories of last month's deadly school rampage in Connecticut were all too fresh.

No one was killed, but the volley of gunshots just after noon on the Lone Star College campus sent students and others scrambling for safety and sparked fear of another campus massacre slightly more than a month after 26 people were killed at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.

Harris County sheriff's officials said late Tuesday that Carlton Berry, 22, had been charged with aggravated assault in the shooting.

Authorities offered no details about what led to the fight. 1 of the people involved had a student ID, Harris County Sheriff's Maj. Armando Tello said.
