1 dead, 4 Seriously Hurt at Texas office shooting; Defendant in custody

The shooting happened in a cabinet business in Bryan, Texas.

Six people were taken, with one murdered, Thursday afternoon in a cabinet-making company in Bryan, Texas, just outside of College Station, officials said. A Department of Public Safety officer was also taken while apprehending the defendant.

Four people were seriously Hurt in the shooting at Kent Moore Cabinets and carried to St. Joseph Health Regional Hospital, Bryan Police Department Chief Eric Buske said. Another individual was taken and carried to the hospital using non-critical injuries.

Bollin is a worker of Kent Moore Cabinets, Buske said.

The defendant had fled the place when Bryan police came soon after 2:30 p.m. local time. He had been taken into custody at Grimes County, Sheriff Donald Sowell told ABC News.

A Department of Public Safety officer has been taken when taking the individual into custody.

DPS stated its officers attempted to take Bollin into custody near Iola at roughly 3:30 p.m., but the defendant shot the trooper and fled. He was subsequently discovered and taken into custody 50 minutes afterwards in the city of Bedias.

A individual was brought to the hospital after suffering an asthma attack.

Workers said the defendant didn't say anything before opening fire at the massive warehouse.

"It was just like I had been living a horror film, you understand," Amelia Rodriguez, a worker at Kent Moore Cabinets, told ABC News. "You see all of the time at the films and they'll occur to us now, and it is indescribable."

"I really don't understand how to feel," she continued. "Just like two hours back, I thought I was gon na na pass out, you understand my legs are feeling weak and what. ... Life is inconsistent, and it may go in another."

The FBI said in a statement that it had been"aware of this incident that happened today in Bryan," however, the Bryan Police Department is leading the investigation.

"I've been working closely with the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Rangers since they help law enforcement on a speedy reaction to this criminal action," Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement. "Their efforts resulted in the arrest of the shooting defendant. The state will help in any way required to help prosecute the defendant."

"[Abbott's spouse ] Cecilia and I'm praying for the victims and their families and also for the law enforcement officer hurt while apprehending the defendant," he further added.

Only hours before, Abbott had chased President Joe Biden's brand new executive activities targeted toward gun reform.

"We won't permit this in TX."
