Texas police responding to a shooting incident and potential bomb situation at an aerospace company announced the situation was resolved after the suspect died on Thursday.
Officers were alerted to a shooting at a Lockheed Martin location Thursday morning, with the suspect later dying from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Bomb technicians also arrived on the scene to evaluate a "suspicious device" in the suspect's vehicle but determined there were no explosive devices, according to the White Settlement Police Department.
