Houston crime: Suspected gunman taken into custody after fatal shooting at Greenway Plaza business

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — An employee is accused of shooting his supervisor to death at a business in Greenway Plaza.

On Wednesday, at about 11:58 a.m., officers received a call of a shooting at 3800 Cummins.

At the scene, police learned the shooting happened on the 10th floor of the building, but the suspect was not found. After a search, authorities said the suspect was arrested at a high-rise apartment complex in the 1600 block of Fannin Street.

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.
