1 dead and 6 wounded in Texas shooting

One person is dead and four in critical condition after a shooting at Kent Moore Cabinets in Bryan, Texas according to Mediaite

According to initial reports, seven people were shot during the incident which took place around 3 p.m local time. 

KBTX-TV (CBS) anchor Rusty Surette tweeted as news began to break that the mass shooting took place in the 300 block of Stone City Drive and at least six injured.

By 6:15 p.m. Bryan police reported that the suspect, who was a former employee of Kent Moore Cabinets, was in custody, though his motive was still unknown. 


According to NBC Los Angeles, at least one law enforcement was among those shot during the incident. 

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott issued a statement about the shooting saying, “I have been working closely with the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Rangers as they assist local law enforcement on a swift response to this criminal act. Their efforts led to the arrest of the shooting suspect.

“The state will assist in any way needed to help prosecute the suspect. Cecilia and I are praying for the victims and their families and for the law enforcement officer injured while apprehending the suspect,” Abbott said.

This shooting comes as President Joe Biden is vowing to enact stricter gun control in what is no doubt a key issue for his most loyal fan base. 

It is, as yet, unclear how that further control will be implemented, or how Democrats plan to make it more closely followed than the laws already on the books about not murdering people, but as of now, the plan continues.
