2 Dead, 2 Injured in Shooting at Katy Trucking Company

On Wednesday morning, a man opened fire at a trucking company in Katy, killing one employee before turning the gun on himself.

The shooting happened at Knight Transportation just before 9 a.m. According to the Harris County Sheriff's Office, the shooter had recently been terminated from his job, though no other details are available about his identity or that of the victim. Authorities say two other employees were also injured from debris that the gunman shot at, but were treated at the scene.

A spokesman for the sheriff's office said that a high-risk operations unit, mobile command unit and aerial support unit had been dispatched to the area, along with EMS and patrol. Across the street from the scene of the shooting sit two Katy Independent School District campuses — Franz Elementary and Morton Ranch High School, which were placed on lockdown.
