HOUSTON- Houston police are looking for a gunman who killed an 18-year-old Texas Southern University student by firing 10 times into a crowd near campus.
Police say the gunfire erupted after a fight broke out at a party at about 1 a.m. Saturday. Freshman Joshua L. McMackle, of Front Royal, Va., was shot in the back and died at a hospital.
Another student was injured, shot in the ankle.
Police spokesman Kese Smith said Sunday that authorities are still looking for the shooter.
TSU spokeswoman Eva Pickens tells the Houston Chronicle the party was not sanctioned by the university.
