KATY, Texas (AP) -- A fired worker started shooting at a Texas transportation company this morning.

One worker was killed and another was hurt before the shooter committed suicide.

It happened at a Knight Transportation office in Katy. That's about 20 miles west of Houston.

Many patrol vehicles have surrounded the building.

Officers are responding to reports of gunfire at a transportation company near Houston.

A nearby high school is on lockdown as a precaution.

A message left with Phoenix-based Knight Transportation also wasn't immediately returned. The company provides truckload transportation services.
