A suspect was later taken into custody.
Texas police arrested a suspect in connection with a mass shooting that left at least one dead and multiple people injured, including a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper.
The Bryan episode is the country's second deadly high-profile shooting in 24 hours, after a former National Football League player reportedly killed five people and himself in SC on Wednesday.
Police are still working to interview witnesses, he said.
"Officers responded, they found several victims, and they were checking the area, check the building looking for more victims", Bryan Police Department Lt. Jason James said in a brief presser. "This is a fluid event still so we're still trying to get some more information".
"It's a business so there's a lot of employees that were inside", he said, "and (police are) investigating who saw what and how it all transpired".
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives sent dogs to the scene of the shooting, said spokesman Deon Washington.
Following the shooting, Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement the "state will assist in any way needed to help prosecute the suspect". "Their efforts led to the arrest of the shooting suspect". "When law enforcement showed up, it was already over with", a police official said.
The shooting occurred just hours after President Joe Biden announced a series of executive orders to curb gun violence. "We will NOT allow this in TX".
