Two people died and one was taken to the hospital following a shooting on the Texas A&M-Commerce campus Monday, according to university officials.
At 10:17 a.m. a student called university police from the Pride Rock Residence Hall. When officers arrived they found two dead women and an injured 2-year-old boy. The child is in stable condition at a local hospital, said Bryan Vaughn, Chief of the Texas A&M-Commerce Police, in a statement. University officials have not yet said whether the two women were students or otherwise affiliated with the school.
The shooting occurred at the Pride Rock Residence Hall, a three story co-ed dorm for freshmen students. University police are still investigating the case.
The school’s lockdown, which lasted about two hours, was lifted Monday afternoon.
