Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Texas Christian University locked down its campus Tuesday after police say a bus driver fired a handgun at another driver following of an argument.

Police said two Roadrunner shuttle drivers were arguing early Tuesday morning near the school's Amon G. Carter Stadium, when one pulled a gun and shot at the other.

The shot missed but his bus struck the person as he drove away, officials said. The victim was not seriously hurt.

Police found the suspect's bus off-campus a short time before he was arrested. Only the drivers were on the bus at the time of the incident, police said.

The Fort Worth, Texas, school posted a notice on Twitter that read, "Armed person on campus. Seek safe shelter immediately." The lockdown was lifted a short time later.

TCU contracts with Roadrunner for shuttle service to carry students and faculty between campus parking lots and buildings.

Texas Christian is a private school with an enrollment of 10,394 students, according to the college's website.
