He also said that the police may have a suspect in custody, noting that it appears he was an employee at the business.

"We want to thank the many members of our law enforcement teams and other emergency personnel who responded so quickly", the statement read.

Chief Buske said that the person in custody is likely an employee of Kent Moor Cabinets, but "did not rule out the possibility of additional suspects". One person was killed, and as of Thursday evening, four people remain in critical condition and a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper is in "serious but stable" condition. His or her identity was not immediately released, but officials said the shooter may have been an employee at Kent Moore. Police asked people to stay away from the business during the investigation. A sixth person was taken to the hospital with asthma related issues. "The subject was booked into Brazos County Sheriff's Office and charged with murder", the police said in a tweet, adding that Bollin was being held on a $1 million bond.

Around 2:30 p.m., officers were called out to a reported shooting at Kent Moore Cabinets in the area of 350 Stone City Drive. Four people were transported to CHI St. Joseph in Bryan in critical condition.

"In a spread-out scene, and this is a fairly spread-out scene, it takes a lot of work and a lot of time to put it all together", Buske said.

Bryan is about 100 miles (160 kilometers) northwest of Houston and is near Texas A&M University.

Following the shooting, Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement the "state will assist in any way needed to help prosecute the suspect".

"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", Abbott said. They did not publicly theorize about his motive.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives sent agents and dogs to the shooting scene, said spokesman Deon Washington.

Investigators were still trying to determine what led to the shooting. "We (are) right in the middle of all this", Sowell said. "We are fully cooperating with the police who are investigating this awful crime".
