It was right around 9am when police say the woman, identified as Michelle Monique Burks, fired off several shots at the front of our building on Bissonnet at Buffalo Speedway.
At five minutes before 9 this morning,a cell phone picture was taken from across the street of Burks firing at the front of the ABC-13 building. Several shots hit glass on a second-story plate glass window. Several cars in the front parking lot were also struck.
Michelle Monique Burks, the shooter, never made it beyond Channel 13’s security fence. Within 20 minutes she was arrested by the Houston police. She was charged with felony deadly conduct.

ABC13 spokesperson official statement follows.
We want to thank Jeff Tobin, the alert eyewitness who heroically took photos while shots were still being fired, which helped police quickly apprehend the suspect. We are grateful to Houston Police Department for their fast response, that no one was injured and the ABC-13 staff is safe and sound.
