Gunman Shoots “Multiple” People At Texas A&M University
Police have apprehended a man they think shot “multiple” people at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas. CNN is reporting numerous law enforcement officers were among the victims. The College Station Police department said they don’t have a definitive number of victims at this time. The shooting took place about a block from campus, and at least one civilian was shot in the attack.
Police are still making sure there aren’t other suspects. At one point, students and residents were told to stay clear of the intersection of Welborn Road and George Bush Drive in College Station, a town of about 95,000 in the east central part of the state.
Below is a clip from local news station KHOU in Houston, Texas. We will have more as the story develops.
Update: It has been confirmed that a Texas constable and two others were killed in the shooting.
CNN now reports: The dead included Brian Bachmann, a constable in Brazos County, according to McCollum. According to his Facebook campaign page, Bachmann was a 41-year-old Republican from College Station who had been a Brazos County sheriff’s deputy since 1993. A male civilian was also killed, the assistant police chief said. A post on the city of College Station’s official Twitter page identified this third victim as a “civilian bystander.” Three others were injured in the shooting. They included two law enforcement officers, including one who was shot in the leg, and a female civilian who was undergoing surgery at a hospital, according to McCollum. College Station reported via Twitter that the two officers are at hospitals and “are said to have non-life threatening injuries.”
