The suspect has been identified as 22-year-old Brian Isaack Clyde.

According to Leander ISD, records indicate Clyde graduated from Vandegrift High School in 2015. He enrolled at the school in March 2012. He was also a member of the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) program and attended Leander High School for coursework and activities.

The incident was caught on camera.

Video shows the suspect fire inside the building from outside. Wearing what appears to be tactical gear, he can be seen running from the building and across the street before collapsing in the parking lot.

Police also conducted a controlled detonation of a suspicious device in his vehicle.

Officials said just one person received minor injuries during the incident, which occurred at the Earle Cabell Federal Building on Commerce Street.

"We had one federal employee who suffered superficial injuries, minor injuries, as she was taking cover from the shooter, and those injuries have been addressed," said U.S. attorney Erin Nealy Cox at a press conference on Monday afternoon. "We are very grateful that that is all we have to say with respect to injuries."

"Every day the men and women of the Federal Protective Service ensure the safety of employees and visitors," said Federal Protective Service regional director Cathy Long. "Their actions today probably saved countless lives."

The FBI is investigating and interviewing family and friends to figure out why Clyde did this.
