Texas A&M-Commerce informed that there were four students had been treated and released from hospitals.
Describing the eerie scene of the debris left behind, there was a lost hat, a lying shoe outside the door, when a crowd of about 750 people was frighten and fled. Some even were so frantic that they cut themselves on broken glass managing to escape through windows.
Graphic video posted online shows how terribly the injured victims were as people screamed in the background.
Police said that the suspects were able to flee the scene, although there were hundreds of potential witnesses around him when he fired at the venue along US Highway 380.
Perhaps the first person being shot was the gunman’s intended target, and the other victims may have been randomly fired, stated the sheriff.
