>> let's bring in don clark , a former member of the fbi and familiar with this particular campus. don, thank you for your time. tell me what you know about this campus.
>> i don't know a lot about the camp campus. i know where the area is and i know it's a very nice, very, you know, lots of trees and very -- really a good college environment type of a setting. it's one of those things where people would usually want to say that, oh, we don't have those kinds of issues here. that we see in some of the inner city type of areas because it's a very upscale and a very nice area there and again i would agree is that, wouldn't expect it to be in an area of this nature.
>> back to -- because we know that crime has no boundaries or barriers, we know that it can happen anywhere.
>> that's true.
>> and we saw that, especially chilling when the massacre at newtown happened. but to this area and it being wooded, if they're looking for another suspect there, from the vantage point of this helicopter shot, as well as some of the images i was able to receive here, it would be a challenge in searching for someone in the wooded area that borders the entire college campus .
>> of course, you know, those of us that live down here in texas and some of the rural areas there, you know, you know how difficult it is trying to find someone in a rural area . slaumt pretty efficient and effective now and they have the abilities with helicopters and with all of other type of access and ability to go in to the areas and you can only hide for so long and eventually you're going to have to come out as you see the thickness of these trees and so forth. you're going to have to come out and show your face some place and this place will be surrounded if they're looblging for one other person to come out of these woods.
>> don, again, but just to and for clarification, have you been on this particular campus before?
>> i have not. i have not been on this particular campus.
>> i know the houston area quite well an i know the wooded area around there but in terms of being on this campus, no.
>> because we are trying to get a better picture of the security situation on that campus. do they have security guards who are armed? are there security guards stationed at the different entrances in thank you for your time, sir. let's give the audience some updated information here. the federal officials have said that this point -- the details are very sketchy. the atf and the fbi are headed to the scene to assist the texas authorities. early word is that there are four victims. one suspect. a student in custody. now, there is some indication according to federal officials that this shooting is gang related . this again is the information i'm provided. and there's some indication that that could be the case. we don't know the complete and full picture. what we do know is that multiple people transported to the hospital. one individual we were told could be in critical condition. one suspect in custody. witness at the scene that spoke with a local reporter on air live indicated that witnesses saw two individuals arguing in the library at this texas college . it spilled outside of the library and there was an exchange of gun fire between the two people. guns prohibited on the campus of the college and any college in the state of texas but people allowed to legally with a license carry a handgun, carry a weapon, in the state
