A police constable and a civilian were killed when a gunman opened fire Monday near the campus of Texas A&M University in College Station. The gunman, who was injured in a gunbattle with police, later died as well, police said.
College Station police responded to a home near George Bush Drive along the southern boundary of the university after gunshots were reported, Assistant Police Chief Scott McCollum said. When officers arrived, they came under fire.
Officers found Brian Bachmann, 41, the elected constable for Precinct 1 in Brazos County, on the ground and began performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation. He was pronounced dead at an area hospital, McCollum said.
My thoughts are with the families of all the victims.
