Suspect Charged in Lonestar College Shooting

22-year-old Carlton Berry charged with aggravated assault after shooting on Houston's Lonestar College campus.

A Houston, Texas man has been charged after he opened fire during a dispute at a north Harris County college, shooting a 24-year-old man, a maintenance man, and accidentally shooting himself, deputies said.

Carlton Berry, 22, was charged with aggravated assault. Harris County sheriff's deputies said the shooting happened outside the library on the Lone Star College's North Harris campus, 2700 W. W. Thorne Drive near Aldine Westfield, at 12:19 p.m. Tuesday.

"We found that the incident was not an active shooter incident but was an altercation between two individuals. One of the individuals did have a student identification. During the altercation, there was a maintenance man that was injured and shot. Another individual at the scene was transported (to) the hospital for a medical reason. She had a medical condition," said Major Armonda Tello with the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators said that medical condition was a heart attack or a stroke.

The maintenance man was shot in the leg. A Harris County Sheriff's Office source said a report identified him as Bobby Cliburn. During a news conference Tuesday, officials said he is expected to be OK.

Investigators said Berry accidentally shot himself in the leg while he was putting his gun back into his pocket. He remained hospitalized and in police custody Wednesday morning.
