Three people have been injured in a shooting at a college in the US state of Texas.

One of the shooters was among the injured at Lone Star College near Houston and was in custody, police said.

A spokesperson for the college said a second armed suspect had fled the campus.

The shooting occurred just over a month after a gunman killed 20 students and six staff at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, Reuters reports.

The latest shootings comes amid a push for gun control laws by President Barack Obama's administration.
