The shooting happened in a cabinet business in Bryan, Texas.
Two victims stay in critical condition after a Thursday afternoon shooting a cabinet-making company in Texas, authorities said Friday.
A worker of Kent Moore Cabinets at Bryan, only outside College Station, allegedly opened fire, killing 40-year-old Timothy Smith and injuring four others in the centre, officials said.
A victim -- a Texas Department of Public Safety officer -- has been shot and wounded while attempting to apprehend the defendant, officials explained.
He's facing a charge of attempted capital murder for shooting at the DPS officer, too.
He is being held on $1 million bond for shooting at the officer in Grimes County and $1.2 million to the murder charge, according to prison records.
Bollin was a worker of Kent Moore Cabinets, Bryan Police Department Chief Eric Buske said.
Marc Barron, a co-worker, informed ABC Houston channel KTRK he'd visit Bollin daily.
Throughout the shooting, Barron stated that they came face to face.
"I turned around and that he faces me. We left eye-to-eye contact," Barron told KTRK. "He essentially turned off from me to take "
Bollin had fled the place when Bryan police came soon after 2:30 p.m. local time, police said.
The Texas Department of Public Safety said its officers attempted to take Bollin into custody near Iola at roughly 3:30 p.m., but the defendant allegedly took a trooper and fled. Bollin was subsequently discovered and taken into custody 50 minutes afterwards at the city of Bedias.
A victim was brought to the hospital after suffering an asthma attack.
Amelia Rodriguez, yet another co-worker, told ABC News,"I do not understand how to feel."
"Two hours ago, I thought I was gonna move , you understand, my legs are feeling helpless and what," she explained. "Life is unpredictable, and it may go in another."
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement,"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."
"The country will help in any way required to help prosecute the defendant," he explained. "Cecilia [the governor's wife] and I'm praying for the victims and their families and also for the law enforcement officer hurt while apprehending the defendant "
Hours before the shooting, Abbott had chased President Joe Biden's brand new executive activities targeted toward gun reform.
He simply announced a brand new liberal power grab to take away our guns," he tweeted. "We won't permit this in TX."
