At approximately 1430 local time (1930 UTC) on 8 April 2021, a gunman opened fire inside a warehouse in Bryan, Texas, a town located near Texas A&M University, about 100 mi (160 km) northwest of the city of Houston. The assailant then fled the scene and a police pursuit ensued, during which the gunman shot and wounded a Texas state trooper. Law enforcement officials apprehended the 27-year-old suspect outside a residence in the town of Bedias — located about 40 miles east of Bryan — nearly two hours after the initial shooting in which one person was killed and five others were wounded. Two of those wounded remain hospitalized in critical condition. The suspect, a resident of the nearby town of Iola, was an employee of the cabinet-manufacturing plant where the shooting occurred. Authorities have launched a probe to determine a definitive motive for the shooting.
