Law enforcement officers, politicians and educators packed into the auditorium at San Jacinto College to talk about school safety.
Sprinkled in the mix were concerned parents like Rachel McCollum, who says she thinks about the same two people every time she hears about a shooting on campus.
"My kids," she said. "Luckily there hasn't been any in this area, as far as where my kids attend."
The meeting was scheduled weeks ago, but came two days after an on campus shooting rattled students and staff members at Lone Star College's North Campus. Dr. Steve Head, president of LSCNC, was also in attendance.
"So what happened with us is two guys got into an argument, or three guys, we can't decide yet," he said. "I'm leaving that with the sheriff's department, but at least one of them pulled out a gun and three people were shot."
The details surrounding the shooting seem to be changing as the investigation progresses. Authorities are not releasing too many details.
A spokesperson for the sheriff would only say investigators believe two men committed aggravated assault.
They've filed charges against Carlton Berry, who remains hospitalized with a gunshot wound. They've also filed charges against Trey Foster. Foster had not been arrested as of Thursday evening.
