The gunman had reportedly been fired that very morning from Knight Transportation. He later returned to the company’s office in Katy, armed with a pistol and shotgun.

Shortly before 8:45am, the gunman re-entered the building and used the shotgun to kill his former supervisor dead. He then turned the gun on himself to commit suicide, authorities confirmed at a morning press conference.

‘Other than he was terminated, we don’t know anything about him,’ Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman said Wednesday morning.

‘He parked right outside the building and came right in.’

Sheriff Hickman called the shooting a ‘retaliatory’ act.

One other employee was injured, but did not need to be hospitalized. Police say that person was hit in the face by a bean bag fired from a shot gun.

A sheriff’s deputy was also injured responding to the shooting, and was hospitalized for his injuries. However, the officer was not hurt by the shooter and his injuries are non-life-threatening.

As the shooting played out Wednesday morning, nearby Morton Ranch High School and Franz Elementary were put on lockdown.
Those lockdowns were cancelled after just an hour.

The schools are located just steps across the street from the trucking company on the 204000 block of Franz Road.
Knight Transportation is also located near the Katy ISD police department.

Prayers going out to all those affected.
