The latest U.S. mass shooting gripped the town of Bryan, Texas on Thursday, when a gunman opened fire at his workplace, Kent Moore Cabinets, some 100 miles northwest of Houston.
He killed one and wounded six others before being taken into custody.
Four of those injured are in critical condition, according to a tweet from local law enforcement.
Bryan Police Chief Eric Buske said they did not identify the suspect or a possible motive, but confirmed that he worked at the cabinet making business.
“We're processing the crime scene to preserve all the evidence we need to preserve. We're also working to notify next of kin. And we're still interviewing any witnesses that have not been interviewed yet.”
Texas Governor Greg Abbott said that a state trooper was among those hurt in the shooting and said the state would assist in prosecuting the gunman.
The violent outburst is the latest in a string of deadly mass shootings across the U.S. since mid-March.
Eight were slain at Atlanta-area spas, 10 at a supermarket in Colorado and four at a business complex in California, including a 9-year-old boy.
Hours before the Texas shooting, U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration proposed limited measures to tackle gun violence.
