KTRK | Houston Chronicle | Houston Press

Michelle Monique Burks was charged with felony deadly conduct after allegedly firing shots into the building that houses Houston's KTRK. "Several shots hit glass on a second-story plate glass window," KTRK reports. "Several cars in the front parking lot were also struck."

A witness photographed the incident, KTRK says in a statement, and helped lead police to the suspect. No one on KTRK's staff was hurt.

Burks has posted some unusual material on her Facebook page in the past, Craig Malisow writes in the Houston Press.

The Houston Chronicle reported that another shooting incident occurred at the station on Feb. 20. Several cars in the parking lot were damaged by bullets and no was injured, the Chronicle said.
