EDITOR'S NOTE: On January 28, Charges were dropped against Carlton Berry, the man who was first accused in the shooting on the campus of Lone Star College.

HOUSTON (AP) — A 22-year-old man has been charged in the shootings at a Houston-area community college campus that left him and two others wounded.

A statement from the Harris County Sheriff's Office identifies the suspect as Carlton Berry. Spokesman Alan Bernstein says Berry is charged with aggravated assault but remains hospitalized with wounds suffered in the shooting.

Bernstein said no other identities are available.

Investigators say a fight between two people erupted in gunfire Tuesday at a Lone Star College campus in suburban Houston. A maintenance man was caught in the crossfire, and students and others were sent cowering in classrooms.

No one was killed, but the volley of gunshots heard shortly after noon fear of another campus massacre just over a month after 26 were killed at a Connecticut elementary school.
