BEAUMONT, Texas - The Jefferson County Courthouse, where police say a gunman shot four people and killed one, reopened on Friday.

Bartholomew Granger is charged with murder. Bail was set at $4 million.

Beaumont police said Granger, 41, fired shots from a pickup truck as he drove by the Jefferson County Courthouse, 1149 Pearl Street, about 11:20 a.m. Wednesday.

Minnie Ray Sebolt, 79, of Deweyville, Texas, an innocent bystander, was killed.

Granger was on trial for a charge of sexually assaulting a family member.

"The shooter shot and ran over his daughter," said Carol Riley with the Beaumont Police Department.

The 20-year-old daughter was hospitalized in critical but stable condition.

Three other people, including the shooter's ex-wife, were wounded in the shooting, according to officials.

Workers spent the Thursday cleaning up blood stains where some of the victims were wounded.
