BRYAN, Texas (AP) – One person was killed and four others injured Thursday in a shootout at a woodworking company in Bryan, Texas, police said, and the gunman was not in custody.
Bryan Police Chief Eric Buske told reporters he believed the shooting suspect was an employee of the Kent Moore Cabinets.
By the time officers arrived, the gunman was gone, Buske said. The shooting took place in the bays of a factory where employees make cabinets.
Employees were being questioned, Police Lt. Bryan Jason James said earlier, and witnesses had identified a suspect. Police were looking for the alleged shooter, James said, but he could not describe the person.
“On this site, when law enforcement appeared, it was already over,” said James.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives sent officers and dogs to the scene of the shooting, spokesman Deon Washington said. He could not provide more details on what happened and said: “It is a situation which is evolving quite rapidly”.
Police asked people to stay away from the business.
Bryan is approximately 100 miles northwest of Houston.
