The Bryan episode is the country's second deadly high-profile shooting in 24 hours, after a former National Football League player reportedly killed five people and himself in SC on Wednesday. Four people were transported to CHI St. Joseph in Bryan in critical condition.

The suspect was not immediately identified, although police said he had been employed at Kent Moore Cabinets.

"There were a lot of employees inside", Bryan Police Lt. Jason James said, adding that police were asking witnesses for information. A fifth person was taken to the hospital suffering from an apparent asthma attack, according to Buske.

A gunman opened fire on Thursday at a cabinet-making plant in Texas where he worked, killing one person and wounding six others before he was taken into custody in the latest of several mass shootings in the United States over the past three weeks.

The state trooper who was shot while pursuing the suspect was is in serious but stable condition, the Texas Department of Public Safety said on Twitter.

Grimes County Sheriff Don Sowell said about two hours after the attack, the suspect was arrested in Bedias, a tiny community about 25 miles (40 kilometres) northeast of Bryan.

Police said the suspected shooter, who may have been armed with a semi-automatic rifle, was taken into custody just before 4:20 p.m.

In fact, Nelson sought to point out moments in the video footage when Chauvin's knee did not appear to be on Floyd's neck. He called Mr Floyd's death "murder", and said Mr Chauvin "knew that Floyd was nonresponsive" during the last few minutes.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has sent agents and dogs to the scene of the shooting, said spokesman Deon Washington.

The Bryan Police Department confirmed a total of seven victims, which also included one person with a minor injury and another with a separate medical issue "related to the incident".

Bryan is about 100 miles (160 kilometers) northwest of Houston and sits on the doorstep of Texas A&M University. It also is the seat of Brazos County.

According to the company's website, Kent Moore Cabinets is headquartered in Bryan and employs more than 600 people statewide.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott offered prayers for shooting victims and their families.

The suspect fled the scene and was later apprehended by law enforcement, and one police officer was shot while taking the individual into custody.

The exact circumstances of the suspect's arrest remain unclear.
