Authorities in Texas have arrested a 23-year-old man in connection with Saturday night’s mass shooting at a college homecoming party that left two people dead and a dozen others injured.

Brandon Ray Gonzalez from Greenville was taken into custody on Monday and ordered held on $1 million bond on a charge of capital murder of multiple persons, Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks said at a late-afternoon news conference.

“We believe the gunman acted alone,” Meeks said, adding that a motive for the attack has not been determined. 

Authorities said more than 750 people were attending the off-campus party for Texas A&M University-Commerce’s homecoming in Greenville when a man armed with a handgun entered the building and opened fire just before midnight. The event was not part of the school’s sanctioned homecoming festivities.

The shooting is believed to have started as a targeted attack before people were shot at random by the gunman, authorities have said. Because it was a targeted attack, Meeks has declined to describe the incident as a “mass shooting,” despite there being multiple gunshot victims.
