At least one person was killed and four were critically injured Thursday in a shooting at a cabinet-making business in Bryan, Texas, the New York Times reported.

The big picture: The unidentified suspected gunman was taken into custody after authorities launched a manhunt, during which a state trooper was also shot and injured. Authorities have yet to determine a motive.

What they're saying: "I have been working closely with the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Rangers as they assist local law enforcement on a swift response to this criminal act," Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement on Twitter. "Their efforts led to the arrest of the shooting suspect."

The Bryan shooting comes in the wake of several major mass shootings in the U.S.
