Sheriff: Backfiring Car May Be To Blame For College Lockdown

A backfiring car may be to blame for a lockdown at a Southeast Texas college.

The college was locked down this afternoon while law enforcement searched campus.

Gonzalez says there is no evidence a shooting ever happened.

Lone Star College-Kingwood is closed the rest of the day.
