A suspect has been captured one day after a mass shooting took the life of two victims and injured six people near a Texas A&M branch campus in Greenville, Texas, Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks announced on Monday.

The suspect arrested was Brandon Ray Gonzales, who was detained at an auto dealership where he works. Meeks said that Gonzales was arrested without incident. Meeks did not note a motive for the early Sunday morning attack. Gonzales' bond was set at $1 million.

Meeks said that Gonzales was identify as a suspect after investigators talked to a number of witnesses to the shooting.

Meeks said that Gonzales allegedly targeted one person, and then decided to shoot others on hand. Meeks said he would not classify last weekend's shooting as a "mass shooting."
