GUNMAN WOUNDS 2 AT HOUSTON SCHOOL

A man armed with two semiautomatic guns and apparently distraught over his son's grades opened fire at a Houston elementary school Friday, wounding two officers before sur-rendering, authorities said.

Terrified children and staff barricaded themselves in classrooms at the Piney Point Elementary School, where the alleged gunman's son is a second-grader. Others fled the grounds. No children were hurt.Calvin Charles Bell was armed with the semiautomatics, four ammunition clips, a combat-style hunting knife and a can of Mace and was dressed in black when he walked into the office just before class began, said police spokesman John Leggio.
