    Houston police tell KTRK-TV four people were shot at three different locations within a block, one on campus and two off campus. Houston police spokesman John Cannon referred questions to university officials.

    Pickens didn't immediately returns calls and e-mails from The Associated Press.

    There's no immediate word on conditions. Pickens tells the Chronicle it's unclear if any of the injured were students.

    Not much in the news as of yet, and this may have nothing at all to do with students...we'll see.

    I just left the TSU website. I wonder if their campus is a "gun free zone?" There is no mention of "gun free zones" there at all on the website. Hmm...

    IIRC, Texas law disallows college campus carry (at least inside the buildings) for those with a license.

    Well, here, from handgunlaw.us, under Texas, under the heading
    Places off limits even with a license:
    ...On the physical premises of a school or educational institution...
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    Update

    They are now reporting it as gang related.

    Drive-by shooting at Texas Southern wounds 6
    By JUAN A. LOZANO (Associated Press Writer)
    From Associated Press
    July 23, 2009 6:49 AM EDT
    HOUSTON - Gunfire on the Texas Southern University campus wounded six people and scattered the crowd at a community rally, and police on Thursday were investigating whether a gang rivalry was behind the drive-by shooting.

    People were gathered at the event that included a Houston rapper's performance when a car drove by and shots sprayed out from the vehicle, school spokeswoman Eva Pickens said, citing witness statements to police. The sound of gunfire made people drop to the pavement of the parking lot where the rally was being held to promote community service and voter registration.

    Peter Role, a local music promoter, told the Houston Chronicle he heard what sounded "like the Fourth of July."

    "We heard some gunshots and everybody was hitting the ground," Role said.

    Six people, including one male student, were being treated for injuries that were serious but not life-threatening, Pickens said.

    Campus police believe the violence resulted from a rivalry between two gangs, one from Missouri City, a suburb southwest of Houston, and the other from Fresno, a small town outside Missouri City, she said.

    Pretty typical of the area the campus is at.
