Another tragic mall shooting has taken place leaving 9 people injured and the shooter dead.
A gunman who died in a shootout with officers in Houston Monday morning was a lawyer who lived in the neighborhood and left a car full of weapons near the scene, the city’s police chief said.
“We are bringing in the bomb squad to secure it safe,” Acting Police Chief Martha Montalvo told reporters.
The FBI is at the scene and assisting the investigation, she said. Montalvo did not reveal the suspect’s identity, but told reporters, “he is a lawyer and there were issues concerning his law firm.”
Police said nine people were injured in the shooting, one critically and one seriously. There are no reports of additional suspects, police said.
