2d suspect arrested in Texas college shooting

HOUSTON — A young man accused of opening fire at a college after someone ‘‘bumped into’’ him was arrested Friday about 250 miles away from the Houston campus, authorities said.

Trey Foster, 22, was brought back to Houston after being arrested around 1 a.m. in a home in the Dallas suburb of Plano, where he was apparently staying with acquaintances, Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia said. It is unclear how Foster got there after Tuesday’s shooting that injured three men at Lone Star College, or whether his friends knew he was a fugitive, the sheriff said.

But, Garcia said, Foster ‘‘confirms that being bumped into is at the root of this incident.’’

Authorities say at least 10 shots were fired, causing a campus-wide lockdown and terrifying students.

A gun that authorities believe Foster used during the shootings was recovered during his arrest, Garcia said.

According to court documents, an argument erupted after 25-year-old Jody Neal bumped into Foster on campus. About 30 minutes later, Foster fired at Neal, who was wounded in the abdomen and leg, the documents said. Neal ran into the campus library and collapsed.
