A fight that broke out between two black males on the Kilgore College campus led to multiple shots being fired on Monday night in Kilgore.

According to the Kilgore Police Department, two unidentified black males were involved in a fight on the campus of Kilgore College. The fight continued in an alley off of Houston Street.

The witnesses informed police that the suspects left the scene in a tan 1990s-syle Chevrolet Caprice, a dark green Chevrolet Suburban or Tahoe with large wheels and an older-model Chevrolet Monte Carlo.
