HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Authorities continue their search for the gun used in Tuesday’s shooting at Lone Star College.

Reports indicate that officials believe that the alleged gunman,22-year-old Carlton Berry had assistance in getting rid of the weapon since it wasn’t found at the scene.

Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia stated that Berry was taken by ambulance to Northwest Medical Center from the campus to be treated for a gunshot wound.

Berry was later moved to the Harris County Jail where he received further treatment for a gunshot wound to the buttocks. He was identified by officials and has been formerly charged with two counts of aggravated assault.

The shooting happened during an argument between Berry and a Lone Star College student. One of the college’s maintenance attendants was caught in the crossfire and suffered a wound to his leg by a bullet.  Although he remains hospitalized, he is expected to fully recover.

Sheriff Garcia offered no additional comments on the motive for the shooting, other than calling it “stupidity.”

Harris County Sheriff’s Officials continue their investigation of the case.
