Gas station set ablaze during shooting aims to reopen (KTRK)

The owner of a Conoco station that caught fire during the mass shooting in West Houston, hopes to open part of his shop on Wednesday.

Sources say 25-year-old Dionisio Garza opened fire on Sunday morning, killing 56-year-old Eugene Linscomb and injuring several others.

The gas station was not opened at the time, so there were no employees or customers at the store when it caught fire, but the pumps and awning sustained significant damage.

The mechanic shop didn't have much damage. The owner is working to assess the damage and cleaning up what he can.

He hopes to open the shop as soon as possible.

When the fire happened, there were still cars in the shop.

The shooting left two people dead, including the alleged 25-year-old gunman.

Six people were injured, including Byron Wilson who is in critical condition at Ben Taub Hospital. The others wounded in the shootout are all expected to be OK.
