A suspect has been detained in connection with an active shooting at a local school, according to Houston police.
From 11:45 a.m. local time, the Houston Police Department reacted to a report at YES Prep Southwest Secondary.
To gain entrance, a 25-year-old Black guy fired at the school’s glass door with a pistol, then shot a male worker.
The victim was given first aid before being sent to the hospital in critical condition. According to Police Chief Troy Finner, the man surrendered “without incident.”
According to Finner, no motive has yet been defined. The suspect was a former student, according to school officials.
The cops resumed their search for “any other probable suspects” at the school, and Finner verified that the suspect only had one weapon at the time.
“I want to express my gratitude to everyone of our teams here,” Finner said.
“I want to thank all our teams here,” Finner told. “You know when we get a call that we think it’s an active shooter, but I’m really proud of the response. It could have been a lot worse.”
