SEVEN INJURED in Houston Shooting; Suspect – Nathan Desai – Taken Out by Police (VIDEO)

At least seven people were injured Monday morning after a male opened fire at a strip mall in Houston.

The suspect was taken out by police.

Suspect identified as Nathan Desai, a local attorney.

Here’s video of officers confronting the shooter this morning.

At least seven people were shot in the attack.

The initial reports said the shooter was a black male but it now looks like the shooter was Indian.
ABC13 reported:

At around 6:30 this morning, HFD scanners reported a suspect was at a strip center firing upon vehicles. The suspect was described as a black male with a revolver.

“We received a call at 6:29 that we had a shooting at the Petco store…the first units were directed to the parking lot where the shooting was still active,” HFD’s Jay Evans says.

“We now have approximately 20 EMS personnel vehicles on scene. We do not know, we do not have a count at this time as to how many people have been shot, but all of the people will be directed to local hospitals in the area that are going to be victims.”

Emergency vehicles flooded the area around the strip center bordered by Weslayan, Bissonnet and Law Street.

Officers concentrated much of their focus during the shooting on an apartment complex on nearby Law Street, located behind the strip center.

HFD officials reported on radio the suspect was seen behind some trees as he opened fire on vehicles in the area.

Our Eyewitness News crew saw firefighters and officers running up and down the street as the gunfire continued.

From the air, Don Armstrong reported seeing bodies on the ground as officers worked to bring the active shooter situation to an end.

Bomb squads are on the scene.
