lonestar stabbing(CNN) — Fourteen people were injured in a stabbing incident Tuesday at Lone Star College’s CyFair campus in Cypress, Texas, a Harris County sheriff’s spokesman said — an incident prompting officials to urge students to take shelter.

Authorities have detained one suspect — so far the only suspect at this point, the sheriff’s spokesman told reporters Tuesday afternoon.

“At least four were transported by (helicopter). A suspect is in custody. The campus is on lockdown,” the sheriff’s department said in a news release.

Details about what led to the incident weren’t immediately released.

“Stay away from the area. Seek shelter in a secure location until the incident is resolved,” the school posted on its website.

Tuesday’s incident comes more than two months after three people were wounded in a shooting at a different Lone Star College campus — the North Harris campus in Houston.
