Six Injured in Concert Shootings at Texas Southern University
Campus police believe drive-by shootings are result of rivalry between two gangs.
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.
Oh, those wacky Democrats!
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”.
and it begins............. Here come the riots.
A loud noise startles sheep. A sheepdog will run to investigate. Alas that colleges forbid sheepdogs that have not been defanged.
I hope the “stupid” police are on this...
More gun control laws would help prevent this sort of thing. /s
Were they able to save Rep. Jackson-Lee?
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.
Unknown at this time.
When will the Amish and Mennonites cease with their senseless blood-letting??? /s
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?
Looks like that traditionally black college college in Texas was not able to match the body counts of those not traditionally black college of Virginia Tech and The University of Texas.
In Texas? You joke, sir.
The last time one of the race baiters tried to start a riot in Texas, vast numbers of Texans of all races showed up at his attempted rally (many with guns) and not only shouted him down but ran him and his race baiting friends off in short order.
Now if it had only been a “gun-free” zone, the shooting would never have happened, as the thugs would have not wanted to break the law.
(idiot or Liberal test: You agree with the above?
answer = ‘yes’ means you are either an idiot or a Liberal (small difference).
answer = ‘no’ means you are either intelligent or a conservative (small difference).
I’m sure they did. Don’t mess with Texas. If I moved from my current state, Texas would be my next choice if it weren’t for all of the illegals. Texas is a great state, lots of real American patriots there.
Fox Radio News reports that it was a party for ( big surprise drum roll ) a rapper.
Let me guess: “Block party” aka gangfest? Ohio State had those back in the day, too. Still might. All sane non-black students stayed in the dorms, stayed in their apartments, or went home. Gee, I wonder why?
We are all 'stupid racists'. Obama trashed doctors in one sentence tonight and the police in another. He really has his priorities in the right place. /s
Did you hear him say that if a child had a sore throat and the parents took him/her to a doctor, the doctor would first look at a pay scale and decide that he/she would make more money by taking out the tonsils when all he/she needed was something for allergy?!
Then he called the police stupid.
I have news for Obama. No one is more stupid, arrogant, clueless, ugly, etc. than him. He proves everyday that he is way over his head! If he keeps this up he may finishing *issing off the other 45 percent of Americans in to thinking he is taking this country in the wrong direction.
0buma just made several hundred thousand new enemies tonight.
That why the Klan never got a foothold ( or dared show it face much ) on that Island ( about 1/3rd black ) I grew up on-- they'd try to hold a rally, and someone- white, black, didn't matter, would holler
"Bo? Whatchu doin', hidin' under that sheet? I done worked with your Daddy- you come out here where we can see ya!
From what I’ve heard, when they tried anything in Texas more serious than cross burning, they were often introduced to high velocity flying lead by the intended victims, which tended to cut down on the number of idiots willing to try that stupidity again.
Something to be said for a highly armed citizenry. :D
The local chief racebaiter in the Houston area (other than the elected fool, Sheila Jackson-Lee) is one Quanell X. Here is what happened to his little organization when he tried to come down and incite a riot against a white man who’d defended himself against two previously deported illegal alien burglars.
Thanks to the local angry motorcyclists, he didn’t even get any face time on the local media anywhere in the vicinity.
Oops, put the wrong tags on those.
Best thing then is to stay away from crap concerts and locales were gangbangers hang. The less the venues are supported, the better off we are.
I would also say that the only tragedy of gang violence, other than its existence at all, occurs when an innocent bystander gets shot, which is why it’s best to avoid the neighborhoods and events that these people frequent.
Later reports said the shopkeepers were stunned by the brazenness of the thieves from Texas Southern University's Ocean of Soul Marching Band, who reportedly picked up compact disc players, tape recorders, pocket televisions and video game software and dropped them into their shopping bags and coat pockets before walking out of stores. They committed the thefts on Dec. 7, the day after they marched at halftime in a game between the University of Nebraska and Kansas State.
Future Tea Parties?
Police shouldn’t have even responded, that way ,no accusations of racial profiling
Yes, thank you Texas State Legislature (actually, the whiney, liberal, city-dwelling hoplophobes among them) for NOT passing a student carry bill in the last session.
Methinks that this bill will be reintroduced in the next session and, in light of this incident, passed. NO ONE shot back because NO ONE WAS ALLOWED TO DO SO. Of course, anyone who carries and is the least bit intelligent will purposely avoid areas and events where there is more likely to be trouble, but it still makes no sense to disarm the law-abiding.
Is that an ACORN I smell? How could an event like this possibly not include an Obamasized voter fraud drive?
A criminal fest.
Looks like there’s one band that will not ever be invited to Japan again. Rightfully so.
Yes, and I’m sure the shooter was using a gun registered to him/her—or even registered at all.
Blacks en masse typically do not make purchases, or support anything worthwhile. If this rap “concert” (an oxymoron if I ever heard one) required an entrance fee, no one would’ve shown up.
That’s hilarious. I had forgotten all about that and I don’t think I ever heard the full 911 tape.
“I just heard on the radio that this community event included a voter registration drive......”
Any bets ACORN was on premises....
