Lawyer Shoots Nine People

By Ola Adeola

A lawyer thought to be emotionally troubled shot at nine people in his rampage on Monday.

The victims were commuters in Houston, Reuters reported. The lawyer was eventually gunned down by the police.

Six victims were taken to hospitals and three were treated at the scene after being shot at while inside their vehicles in the wealthy neighborhood of West University Place, acting Houston Police Chief Martha Montalvo said. The police however didn’t identify the suspect and said the FBI was assisting with the investigation. The police didn’t also say if the attack was terrorism. The police also found in the suspect’s car—which has been secured—numerous weapons.

“The motivation appears to be a lawyer whose relationship with his law firm went bad,” says Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner.

The police bomb squad was securing the suspect’s car, a black Porsche, which had numerous weapons in it. Police were planning to search his house.
