Larry Bollin, 27, is charged with murder.

One person was killed at the scene and six others were taken to area hospitals. Of those injured, two of the five people wounded  are in critical condition. The three others are in serious but stable condition. 

“Somebody told me no, no, no, there’s a shooting.  We need to get out of there. I turned back and I saw all of us, a bunch of us, running, running, running,” said Amelia Rodriguez, an employee of Kent Moore Cabinets.  

After the shooting, authorities said Bollin left the scene and led DPS troopers on a high-speed chase back to his home in Iola, which is about 30 miles east of the cabinet shop.

Once they got to Iola, authorities said a shooting took place and a trooper was hit. That trooper was taken to an area hospital and was last reported to be in serious but stable condition.

Bryan Police Chief Eric Buske says investigators believe Bollin was solely responsible for the attack. He's being held on $1 million bond.

At this point we don't know a motive. We also don't know the identity of the person who was killed or any of the other shooting victims.
