6 injured in shooting at Texas business, police say

Fox News reported that according to Bryan Police Lt. Jason James, employees of Kent Moore Cabinets were being interviewed and that witnesses had identified the suspect.

About an hour later, law enforcement confronted the suspect in Iola, Texas - located about 30 miles northeast of Bryan.

The shooter, whom police believe to be an employee of the business, Kent Moore Cabinets, was gone, CNN reports.

The suspect fled the scene and was later apprehended by law enforcement, and one police officer was shot while taking the individual into custody.

Police said that The Texas Department of Public Safety caught Bollin in Grimes County, an estimated half-hour drive to the southeast of Bryan.

Police responded to a shooting at Kent Moore Cabinets on Thursday, April 8, 2021, in Bryan, Texas. The person is an employee of the company, Buske said. A fifth person was taken to the hospital suffering from an apparent asthma attack, according to Buske.

The actions come after multiple mass shootings across the country in recent weeks, including a shooting at multiple massage parlors in Atlanta and a mass shooting that left 10 people dead at a grocery in Boulder, Co. He has been charged with murder and booked into the Brazos County Sheriff's Office and is being held on $1 million bond.

The Bryan Police Department, in a tweeted statement, confirmed seven victims, among them one deceased, four hospitalized in critical condition, one with a minor injury and one "medical related to the incident". The state will assist in any way needed to help prosecute the suspect. "He remains in serious but stable condition".

Bryan is about 100 miles (160 kilometers) northwest of Houston and sits on the doorstep of Texas A&M University. They did not release any other details about him or his motive.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives sent agents and dogs to the shooting scene, said spokesman Deon Washington. A shooting suspect is in custody.

"I started walking and someone grabbed me and said, "No, we need to run'". A strong majority supported requiring background checks for all gun purchases, and most backed temporarily taking guns away from people deemed risky to themselves and others. "Cecilia and I are praying for the victims and their families and for the law enforcement officer injured while apprehending the suspect".
