Texas shooting: one person killed, four injured

The suspect fled the scene but was later arrested and resisted police.

At least one person was killed, and several were injured on Thursday in a shooting opened by an armed criminal in Bryan, Texas. The Reuters news agency reported this with reference to the local police.

The incident occurred on the territory of the company Kent Moore Cabinets, which is engaged in furniture production, said the chief of the city police Eric Bousquet. It is assumed that an employee of this enterprise opened the shooting. According to “France-Presse,” the attacker fled the scene but was later taken into custody.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott said, “the state will provide any assistance necessary to prosecute the suspect.” Abbott said one of the police officers was injured while apprehending the suspect.

Lieutenant Jason James, a spokesman for the Bryan Police Department, said in an interview with CNN that at the time the shots rang out, “there were a lot of employees in the room.”

According to Bousquet, as a result of the shooting at the scene, one person was killed, and four others were injured. Another person was taken to the hospital with an asthma attack.

Bryan, a city of about 87,000 residents and the administrative center of Brazos County, is a short drive from Texas Mechanical and Agricultural University, about 160 km northwest of Houston.

The Texas shooting came hours after President Joe Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland announced new measures to address the surge in gun violence.
