Houston police responded to the shooting at the Courtyard Apartments around 11:30 a.m. Police say the campus remains on lockdown while they search for the suspect. The rest of Friday's classes have been cancelled.
According to the Houston Chronicle, the shooting is the third in recent weeks on or near the TSU campus.
The shooting happened at the same student housing complex where another person was shot overnight, CBS affiliate KHOU reports. That victim was treated and released.
It's unclear if the shootings are related.
