Texas Southern University turned into a crime scene when a gunman ran through the campus after firing several shots.
A spokesman for TSU said the suspect was firing a gun at an housing complex across the street from the university and then ran through the campus Thursday night.
Witnesses said they spotted the gunman running into the student center, but he tossed the weapon into some bushes.
No classes were in session at the time and no injuries were reported.
Patrols have increased patrols in the area.
