At least one person was killed and five other people were injured — four of them critically — in a shooting at an industrial park Thursday in Bryan, Texas. Authorities said a suspect is in custody.

The shooting occurred just hours after President Joe Biden announced a series of executive orders to curb gun violence. Biden's executive actions, which are likely to face legal hurdles, are aimed at reducing mass shootings, suicides and domestic violence.

"Gun violence in this country is an epidemic, and it is an international embarrassment," Biden said Thursday.

One of Biden's orders would direct the Justice Department to write rules that would reduce the proliferation of "ghost guns," homemade firearms often made from parts bought online, which do not have traceable serial numbers.

Another order directs the Justice Department to publish model "red flag" laws for states to use as guides for laws that allow family members or law enforcement agencies to petition state courts to temporarily block people from obtaining firearms if they present a danger to themselves or others.
