Texas police are searching for a suspect after multiple people were shot Thursday inside a business in Bryan.
At a news conference, Bryan Police Lt. Jason James said “several victims” had been transported to local hospitals. Though the shooter is not in custody, the scene was secure, he said.
Employees of the business were being interviewed, James said, and witnesses had identified a suspect. Authorities have not said if anybody was killed.
“This is 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 traffic.
The shooting reportedly happened at the headquarters of Kent Moore Cabinets, a custom cabinet maker, according to its website.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has sent agents and dogs to the scene, said spokesman Deon Washington. He could not provide more detail on what happened and said “it’s a pretty rapidly evolving situation.”
Bryan is adjacent to College Station, home to Texas A&M University. It is about 100 miles east of Austin and 100 miles northwest of Houston.
