CYPRESS, Texas (CNN)-

Fourteen people were injured in a stabbing incident Tuesday at Lone Star College’s CyFair campus in Cypress, Texas, a Harris County sheriff’s spokesman said — an incident prompting officials to urge students to take shelter.

Authorities have detained one suspect — so far the only suspect at this point, the sheriff’s spokesman told reporters Tuesday afternoon.

“At least four were transported by (helicopter). A suspect is in custody. The campus is on lockdown,” the sheriff’s department said in a news release.

Details about what led to the incident weren’t immediately released.

“Stay away from the area. Seek shelter in a secure location until the incident is resolved,” the school posted on its website.

Tuesday’s incident comes more than two months after three people were wounded in a shooting at a different Lone Star College campus — the North Harris campus in Houston.

    God protected us in our classroom,” he said. “We wish we could protect ourselves with guns and stuff. We wish that the law would let us carry guns because we’re legal adults, [to] carry guns on campus to protect ourselves. But so far all we have to rely on is God. But we would love to have God and the law on our side.”

    Is the stuffed monkey safe?
