Larry Bollin, the man charged in Thursday’s shooting at Kent Moore Cabinets that left one person dead and five injured, had his bond increased to $3.2 million on Friday.

Bollin, 27, appeared before Brazos County Justice of the Peace Celina Vasquez via a video call from the Brazos County Jail for an arraignment hearing on Friday. Vasquez increased Bollin’s initial bond of $1 million for a murder charge to $1.2 million.

Friday evening, authorities announced that Bollin is now also charged with five counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison. Each charge has a bond set at $200,000.

Timothy Smith, 40, of Bryan died after being shot at the business in the Brazos County Industrial Park in Bryan. Authorities said Bollin was an employee at the business but the reason behind the shooting remains unknown.

Bollin also has an additional $1 million bond for a warrant from Grimes County for attempted capital murder. That charge is related to the shooting of a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper in Iola as the trooper was attempting to arrest Bollin.

The trooper, Juan Rojas Tovar, remained in serious but stable condition at St. Joseph Hospital in Bryan on Friday.

An employee at Kent Moore Cabinets in Bryan told police that the man who opened fire at the business on Thursday emptied the magazine from a handgun, reloaded and began firing again.

According to the police report, the employee told investigators he was working at his station cutting wood about five feet away from Bollin when the shooting began. The worker told police he heard three shots but thought it was a staple gun. The man did not see Bollin shoot Smith, but reported seeing Bollin empty a magazine in Smith’s direction.

The employee told police Bollin “then turned around, looked at everyone, reloaded and started firing again,” according to the report.
