A gunman walked into an auto repair shop in Houston Friday afternoon and opened fire.

Police say he killed two employees and then left the auto shop and shot and killed himself nearby.

Investigators say the gunman was a former employee, but would not say when he worked at the shop or comment on a possible motive for the shooting.

It all happened shortly after 4 p.m. Friday in front of other employees and customers.

A relative of one of the victims says his cousin had worked at the shop for more than 20 years and never had any problems.
