The suspect is believed to be an employee of the Bryant, Texas cabinet business, where the shooting took place.

One person was killed and four others were hospitalized following a shooting at a cabinet business in Bryan, Texas, on Thursday, police said.

Sheriff Bryan Eric Buske told reporters that the gunman appeared to be an employee of the business where the shooting took place, Kent Moore Cabinets, and he believes the suspect has been detained.

The shooting left one person dead at the scene and four others were hit by bullets, the chief said. According to Buske, a fifth person was admitted to the hospital with an asthma attack.

According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, a Texas soldier was shot while chasing the suspect and is still in serious but stable condition.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott said in a statement that “the state will assist in any way necessary to help prosecute the suspect.”

Police Lieutenant Bryan Jason James said officers from his department responded to reports of a shooting at 2:30 p.m. local time (19:30 GMT) and found “some employees “at the cabinet business establishment.

Employees of the business were interviewed, James said, and witnesses identified the suspect.

β€œAt this website, when law enforcement showed up, it was all over,” James said.

Deon Washington spokesman said the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Guns and Explosives sent agents and dogs to the shooting scene. He couldn’t give more details on what happened and said “it’s a situation that develops quite quickly.”

The police ask people to stay away from the business.

Bryan is about 160km (100 miles) northwest of Houston.

The latest shootings come amid a series of recent mass shootings in the US. On Thursday, the authorities said a gunman in South Carolina 5 people were shot dead, including a prominent doctor, his wife and two of their grandchildren before committing suicide afterwards.

Last month, a gunman kill 10 people at a supermarket in Boulder Colorado. And on March 17, a gunman opened fire on three massage parlors in Georgia, killing eight people.
