(CNN) –Three people one suspected shooter and two perhaps unintended targets were wounded in a shooting that appears to have been between two people at the Lone Star College campus in Houston, school spokesman Jed Young said.

The wounded suspect is in custody, and the second gunman is on the loose, Young said.

Authorities believe the school is “under control, but the school still is being evacuated,” Young said.

Young said he doesn’t know the conditions of the wounded.

The FBI and ATF have sent agents to assist local authorities, according to Shauna Dunlop with FBI Houston and Franceska Perot with ATF Houston.

A witness told CNN affiliate KPRC that she hid underneath her desk while she heard five or six gunshots at Lone Star College.

One person has been transported to Houston Northwest Medical Center, according to spokeswoman Ashley Walton.

She would not give any further details about the patient.

Students were filing out of what CNN affiliate KHOU reports is the library on campus.
