HOUSTON (RNN) – A man who opened fire at drivers near a shopping center Monday was killed in a confrontation with responding officers, the police chief said.
Police Chief Martha Montalvo said nine people were injured in the attack. Six were hospitalized with gunshot wounds, including one in critical condition and another in serious condition, and three others were treated and released after sustaining wounds from glass or other debris.
Montalvo did not release the suspect’s name but said their information indicated he was a lawyer, “and there were issues concerning his law firm.” She said the suspect’s vehicle, a Porsche, had been found with “numerous weapons” inside it.
“We are bringing in the bomb squad to secure it,” she said. “Once we have done that, we will also secure the suspect’s apartment.”
The Houston Police Department stated on Twitter that the suspect was “DOA.” Police said there were no other reports of suspects.
Active shooter scene still active but contained. Suspect DOA. Media staging area at Wells Fargo parking lot at 3900 Bissonnett & Weslayan.
