Multiple people were shot inside their cars at a Houston shopping center on Monday morning.
The Houston fire department said six people were taken to local hospitals and that the gunman was “neutralized”.
At a press conference, the department advised residents at the nearby Oaks at West University condominiums to stay indoors as the investigation continued.
Houston Police said on Twitter that a gunman had been shot by police and that there were no reports of other suspects.
The shooting happened in a strip mall parking lot in Houston’s Upper Kirby commercial district, a wealthy neighborhood that has red phone booths installed on street corners because it shares the same initials as the UK.
The incident occurred just two days after a gunman opened fire in a Washington state mall, killing five people. That suspect was taken into custody on Sunday. A little over a week earlier, an attacker at a mall in St Cloud, Minnesota, stabbed 10 people before being shot dead by an off-duty police officer.
