Law enforcement officers on Wednesday were investigating a possible drive-by shooting near Galveston College that briefly put the campus under a shelter-in-place recommendation, Sheriff Henry Trochesset said.
Deputies received a call at about 12:28 p.m. that someone drove near the campus and fired a shot, Trochesset said. No one reported any injuries.
The shooting didn’t happen on campus or inside a college building, Trochesset said.
The college is located at 4015 Avenue Q in Galveston.
College officials sent out an alert to students at 12:32 p.m. asking them to shelter in place because a shot hit the student center, said Carol Langston, spokeswoman for the college.
The recommendation lasted until investigators had a chance to review security video of the incident, Langston said. It was lifted at 1:15 p.m.
The sheriff’s office is contracted to provide security at the college.
The Galveston Police Department is investigating the incident because it happened off of the campus, Trochesset said.
