Texas police are looking for a suspect after several people were shot dead at a business in Bryan on Thursday.
During a press conference, Police Lt. Bryan Jason James said “several victims” had been taken to local hospitals. Although the shooter is not in custody, the scene was secure, he said.
Company employees were being questioned, James said, and witnesses had identified a suspect. Authorities did not say if anyone was killed.
“It’s still an active situation,” police said on Twitter.
The Eagle newspaper reported that two ambulances had left the scene and six more had been dispatched to the Brazos County Industrial Park, citing scanner trafficking.
The shooting allegedly took place at the headquarters of Kent Moore Cabinets, a custom cabinetmaker, according to his website.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives sent officers and dogs to the scene, spokesman Deon Washington said. He could not provide more details on what happened and said: “It is a situation which is evolving quite rapidly”.
Bryan is adjacent to College Station, home to Texas A&M University. It is approximately 100 miles east of Austin and 100 miles northwest of Houston.
