Houston mall shooting: 9 people wounded, gunman dead

After he began shooting on a local street, people ran to the mall for cover. Houston Fire Department spokesman Ruy Lozano said six were shot and three had minor injuries related to glass.

Jennifer Molleda and her husband live in the same condo complex as the shooter.

She declined to further discuss possible motives behind the shooting.

Montalvo did not release the suspect's name but said their information indicated he was a lawyer, "and there were issues concerning his law firm". It's very, very early.

Wilson said police and the shooter exchanged gunfire as police worked to bring the active shooting situation to a close. He managed to flee and escape injury. One of the victims was in critical condition and one in serious condition.

A troubled lawyer opened fire on morning commuters in Houston on Monday, injuring at least nine people before being fatally shot by police, authorities said.

Fox News has since identified the gunman as Nathan DeSai, citing multiple sources.
