TSU spokeswoman Eva Pickens says one male student was among those injured Wednesday night.

Pickens says witnesses told police people in a car drove by the outdoor event where a popular Houston rapper was promoting a school supply giveaway and opened fire.

Six people were shot. Pickens says they are being treated at hospitals for serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

That means there are six fewer thugs running around.

Hopefully they’ll keep killing each other faster than they’re being born. Maybe someday, through attrition, there will be far fewer of them on the loose instead of in the cemetery where they belong.

The gunfire appeared to be the result of a drive-by shooting.

Houston police confirm the victims were shot at three different locations all within a one-block range, according to ABC News station KTRK.

Witnesses say the gunfire caused a stampede of people running for safety.

“I took off running with flip-flops on. There was a pregnant lady and I tried to help her,” T’Angela DeBoest told KTRK. “I escorted her to someone’s property where she would be safe.” The victims were all taken to area hospitals where they are being treated for reported non-threatening injuries. It is not clear if the shooting victims were students.

The community event was hosted by Houston City Council member Peter Brown, who is also running for mayor.

U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee was also expected to attend the community event.

Texas Southern is one of the largest historically black universities with approximately 10,000 students.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

At least one victim was a university student.

Per FNC TV.

Note to non-Texans: Texas Southern is a “traditionally black college”.

A loud noise startles sheep. A sheepdog will run to investigate. Alas that colleges forbid sheepdogs that have not been defanged.

More gun control laws would help prevent this sort of thing. /s

A rap concert? Gang related? Nawwwww...really?

I’m guessing the combined IQ of the attendees was about 10.

And, none of them had their hats on backwards nor were wearing baggy pants with their asses exposed.

Hold on...I thought Obama suggested tonight that “profiling” was the greatest public order issue facing the Black community. Did the police respond “stupidly” to this incident?
