1 dead, 4 critically injured in Texas office shooting; possible suspect in custody


Six people were shot, with one killed, at a cabinet-making business in Bryan, Texas, just outside of College Station, officials said.

Four people were critically injured in the shooting at Kent Moore Cabinets and taken to St. Joseph Health Regional Hospital, Bryan Police Department Chief Eric Buske said. Another person shot was taken to the hospital in non-critical condition.

One victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Bryan police said they believe the suspect is in custody. The person in custody is an employee of the company.

The suspect had fled the location when Bryan police arrived shortly after 2:30 p.m. local time. He was taken into custody in Grimes County, Sheriff Donald Sowell told ABC News.

A seventh individual was taken to the hospital after suffering an asthma attack.

“Officers responded, they found several victims, and they were checking the area, check the building looking for more victims,” Bryan Police Department Lt. Jason James said in a brief presser. “This is a fluid event still so we’re still trying to get some more information.”

The FBI said in a statement it was “aware of the incident that occurred today in Bryan,” but the Bryan Police Department is leading the investigation. The Houston Field Division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is also responding.
