BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - The man charged in a fatal workplace shooting that left one dead and six injured, including a DPS trooper, was indicted Thursday by a grand jury in Brazos County on multiple charges including murder and five counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Larry Bollin, 27, is accused of opening fire on his coworkers at the Kent Moore Cabinets manufacturing facility in Bryan on April 8.

Timothy Smith, 40, was killed. Bollin is also accused of shooting and injuring Department of Public Safety Trooper Juan Tovar in Grimes County as law enforcement pursued him.

Bollin, a Grimes County resident, remains in the Brazos County jail on a $3.2 million bond.

His attorney first told KBTX in April that Bollin was harassed on the job and that was the motivation behind the mid-afternoon attack. Workers at Kent Moore Cabinets said the week prior to the shooting Bollin was involved in an argument with another co-worker.

After gunning down his co-workers, authorities say Bollin fled to Grimes County where he was located near his home by state troopers. That’s when Trooper Tovar was shot in the face but survived.

He’s charged with attempted capital murder in Grimes County.
