Houston Gunman Opens fire at US mall before being shot.

Several people have been wounded in a shooting at a shopping centre at Houston in the US state of Texas, reports say.

Local media report that the police shot the suspect, but there are no details about his identity or his condition.
Houston police said they did not believe any other people were involved in the shooting.

Residents have been asked to avoid the area, and police say a bomb squad is checking the suspect's vehicle.
"At this time, the shooting scene is believed to be contained," the city of Houston said on its emergency page.
On its Twitter account, Houston police said they did not know the "exact number or severity of injuries"
.
The shooting comes three days after a shooting at a shopping mall in Washington state, in which five people were killed.

The gunman in that attack, Arcan Cetin, 20, was born in Turkey and is a legal US permanent resident, officials say.

The FBI have said there was no evidence that the shooting there was linked to terrorism.
Ten days ago, a 20-year-old man stabbed 10 people at a Minnesota shopping centre before being shot dead by an off-duty police officer.
