Police said the suspect is an employee at Greenway Plaza and the victim was his supervisor. Police believe the suspect targeted his supervisor as he “passed up everybody else.” But it’s unclear why he targeted the supervisor.
“We do not think this was random. But that he was actually looking for his supervisor,” according to HPD Executive Assistant Chief Larry Satterwhite.
The scene is no longer considered an active shooting incident, though officials ask that the public still avoid the area.
