One person is dead and at least five others are injured after a person reportedly opened fire inside a warehouse in Bryan, Texas.

The suspect is now in custody and is believed to be an Kent Moore Cabinets, where the shooting took place. However, police having ruled out whether another suspect was involved, according to KBTX.

Bryan Chief of Police Eric Buske told reporters the employee showed up at the company’s headquarters and began shooting near the warehouse. Police were called to the scene just before 2.30pm on Thursday (local time).

One person died at the scene and five others were hospitalised with gunshot wounds. At least four of those people are in critical condition. A sixth person was also hospitalised after suffering from an asthma attack.

Authorities said a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper was also shot while pursuing a suspect in relation to the shooting. The trooper is in a serious but stable condition.

Mr Buske said the person was gone by the time police arrived. Local media is reporting the suspect was later captured in the neighbouring Grimes County.

The motive for the shooting is still unknown.

The shooting forced a nearby school to go into lockdown but that order has since been lifted.

Kent Moore Cabinets released a statement saying the company was “devastated” by the events at the Bryan manufacturing facility.

“Our hearts go out to the families and the loved ones of those affected. We want to thank the many members of our law enforcement teams and other emergency personnel who responded so quickly,” the company said.
