At least one person was killed and four others injured on Thursday during a shooting inside a cabinet-making business in Bryan, police said.

The suspected shooter is believed to be an employee at Kent Moore Cabinets, Bryan Police Chief Eric Buske said early Thursday night, adding, “We believe we may have a suspect in custody, but we’re still working on that,” he said at a news conference.

One person died at the scene, and four others were transported to a local hospital in critical condition, authorities said. A sixth person was taken to a hospital after suffering “an asthma attack,” Buske said.

“This is still an active situation,” police said on Twitter.

The Eagle newspaper reported that two ambulances had left the scene and six more had been dispatched to the Brazos County Industrial Park, citing scanner traffic.

Kent Moore Cabinets is a custom cabinet maker, according to its website. The shooting took place in the bays in a plant where employees make cabinets.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has sent agents and dogs to the scene, said spokesman Deon Washington. He could not provide more detail on what happened and said “it’s a pretty rapidly evolving situation.”

Bryan is adjacent to College Station, home to Texas A&M University. It is about 100 miles east of Austin and 100 miles northwest of Houston.
