Montavius Wright, 26, faces murder charges. He is accused of shooting and killing his own boss. His bail was set at $500,000.
The judge issued a bail-supervision order, which means that if Wright is released from jail, he must have no contact with the victim’s family members or his associates, stay 500 feet from work, surrender his passport, only in Harris County and surrounding areas, do not use illegal drugs or alcohol, do not own a gun and wear a GPS tracking device.
The workplace shooting sparked a mid-workday scare in Cummins’ 3800 block on Wednesday.

Video obtained by ABC13 showed Wright’s arrest Wednesday afternoon outside a high-rise apartment in downtown Houston on Fannin Street.
Investigators said Wright showed up at his job at Cedar Gate Technologies on the 10th floor of the 20 Greenway Plaza building around noon with a loaded gun and allegedly shot his boss.
The shots sparked panic in the building, other employees frantically called 911 and barricaded themselves in the rooms to stay safe.

Wright then reportedly exited the building, sparking an intense manhunt to find him.
According to new details emerging in court, investigators found 9mm shell casings around the victim, identified as Doran Kelly, after he was shot.
A witness who is a colleague of Wright and Kelly said he heard the shot and looked out of his cabin and saw Wright pointing a gun. The witness said Wright told him not to say anything before scooting off and fleeing down the stairwell.
The witness told investigators he had been Wright’s associate for about two years but had no idea what his motive in the shooting might have been. Prosecutors also said the motive was still unknown.
After Wright was arrested and invited for an interview, police said he ended the interview once his Miranda rights were read.
Other employees in the building say they were shocked after the incident.
“I feel kind of lucky. Could you imagine being in there and not knowing? It’s crazy,” said employee Chris Idol.
According to court records, Wright has no criminal record in Harris County.
