Disgruntled Worker Goes on Shooting Spree in Texas
Texas police on Thursday arrested a suspect in connection with a mass shooting that left at least one dead and five others injured, including a Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) trooper, authorities said.
The shooting took place at Kent Moore Cabinets, before 3 p.m. at 350 Stone City Drive in Bryan, Texas.
Bryan Police Chief Eric Buske told reporters he believes the shooting suspect – whose identity has not been released – is an employee at the business.
"At this site, when law enforcement showed up it was already over with," Bryan Police Lt. Jason James said earlier.
Employees of the cabinet-making business were being interviewed and witnesses had identified a suspect.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives sent dogs to the scene of the shooting, said spokesman Deon Washington.
The wounded were taken to St. Joseph Health Regional Hospital in critical condition as authorities launched a manhunt for the shooter.
Texas DPS said one of its troopers was shot while pursuing "an individual suspected of being involved in the shooting." The trooper remains in serious but stable condition, the agency said.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott released a statement in response to the shooting, saying that he has been "working closely with the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Rangers as they assist local law enforcement on a swift response to this criminal act."
