The Associated Press

HOUSTON (AP) — Houston police say several people have been shot at a strip mall in the city's southwest and that officers shot the gunman.

Police said via Twitter Monday that an "active shooter at Weslayan & Bissonnet has been shot by our officers" and that there are no reports of other suspects "at this time."

Police say several people have been taken to the hospital but that they cannot provide details about how many were shot or the severity of their injuries.

According to the Houston Chronicle, assistant police chief Richard Mann said gunfire lasted for about 20 minutes and the shooting suspect has been "neutralized."

The Associated Press has left messages seeking comment from the police.

The shooting comes days after a shooting at a Washington state mall that left five people dead. On Sept. 17, a 20-year-old man stabbed 10 people at a Minnesota mall before being shot to death by an off-duty police officer.
