Texas gunman was getting eviction notice
Tue, 14 Aug 2012 6:47a.m.
Police say the gunman has died after a shooting that killed a law enforcement officer and another civilian near the Texas A&M University campus.
Bryan Police Department spokesman Jon Agnew says two other law enforcement officers and another woman also were injured in the shooting in College Station.
Police say the gunman was being served an eviction notice before he opened fire.
Assistant College Station Police Chief Scott McCollum earlier identified the officer killed as Brazos County Constable Brian Bachmann.
Mr Agnew said police don't know if the shooter was a student at A&M.
The school had issued an alert on its website just before 12:30 pm warning of an active shooter near the campus football stadium, Kyle Field. The warning told residents and students to avoid the area, and was later updated with the shooter taken into custody.
Texas A&M spokeswoman Sherylon Carroll could not confirm details about the shooting, but said most students were not on campus Monday and the fall semester does not begin until August 27.
"It appeared to be fairly quiet," Carroll said of campus. "It didn't appear to be a lot of people out and about at that particular time."
College Station is about 90 miles northwest of Houston. Texas A&M is home to more than 50,000 students, according to its website.
