Sheriff: 'Stupidity' led to Texas campus shooting
"It was a ridiculous, adolescent confrontation that occurred. But if we can make an example out of anyone, we will"
By Matt Smith
HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — The exact subject of the argument that led to a shooting a Houston-area community college hadn't been determined Wednesday, but Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia said he had a general idea of the cause.
"Idiocy. Stupidity," Garcia told reporters. "We had individuals who did not care about putting other people in harm's way. It was a ridiculous, adolescent confrontation that occurred. But if we can make an example out of anyone, we will."
