On Tuesday morning, Texas Christian University was on high alert. A campus lockdown took place after two shuttle bus drivers got into an argument, turning into a potentially fatal situation. 

The university, located in Fort Worth, Texas, sent out a Tweet about the situation at around 7:30 a.m. They told students to "seek safe shelter immediately" due to an armed person on campus.

According to CBS, the issue began when two employees of the Roadrunner Shuttle service got into an argument. They were located near the corner of West Cantey Street and Highview Terrace, near TCU's Amon Carter football stadium. 

The tensions escalated, and eventually, one of them pulled a gun and fired toward the other but missed. Then, the driver reportedly rammed his own shuttle into the other one. 

After hitting the other shuttle, the driver escaped from the scene. TCU sent out another message, describing the suspect and the shuttle bus number, as police were still actively searching for the shooter.

Just after 8 a.m., the campus lifted the lockdown. They tweeted out another statement, saying, "All clear. Resume normal activities."

No other information has been given regarding the suspect. Additionally, there has been no word on injuries and it is unclear on whether or not there were students on board of the shuttle. We will continue giving updates as they are made available. 

Please pray for safety for the students at TCU. In other recent news, VP Mike Pence took a bold action for the Texas church massacre victims.
