Police in the US state of Texas say a man who shot several people in Houston had additional weapons in his car.

Nine people were injured, and one is in critical conditional, after the shooting at a shopping centre in the city.

The shooter was killed in a police operation.

A bomb squad is working to clear the suspect's vehicle, which was searched.

Police say there were additional weapons inside.

They will then focus the search on his apartment.

The suspect was reportedly a lawyer - and police say the investigation will determine if issues at his firm led to the shooting.

"Residents are asked to please avoid the area of Wesleyan St, between Westpark Drive and Bissonnet Street as it is still an active response and investigation scene," the city's Office of Emergency Management says.
