A man who had been fired from a Houston-area trucking firm on Wednesday returned to the company and fatally shot a co-worker with a shotgun before taking his own life, the Harris County sheriff said.

Sheriff Ron Hickman told reporters at the scene of the shooting at Knight Transportation, that the co-worker who was killed appeared to be a supervisor. He did not release the names of those killed.

"The suspect is believed to have taken his own life after being terminated early this morning," the sheriff's office said on its Twitter feed.

One other person was injured in the incident, Hickman said.

Live video from the scene showed multiple patrol cars and ambulances at the business located in Katy, about 30 miles west of Houston.
