COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Police say a gunman was being served an eviction notice before he opened fire from inside a home near Texas A&M and killed a law enforcement officer.

College Station Assistant Police Chief Scott McCollum says Brazos County Constable Brian Bachmann was among three people, including the gunman, killed in a shootout at the house Monday.

McCollum says a 65-year-old man was the third person killed. A woman and three law enforcement officers also were injured.

McCollum says Bachmann went to the off-campus home near A&M's football stadium early Monday afternoon when the gunman opened fire. Other officers responded to the scene after receiving a call that an officer was down.

The shooting prompted Texas A&M to send out an alert warning students and residents to stay away from the area.

It seems to be the easy-way to do things for these criminal. Long harsh punishments would curtail a lot of this behavior , if not the death penalty.

Including the gunman

Who was killed during the shootout - now what? God help those that are affected by this horrible tragedy and give them the strength to get through it all. It seems like guns are now the only thing that people can use to express their anger. But taking them away from law abiding citizen is not the answer - we need to be able to protect ourselves. And I still say that the ball and chain gang should be reinstituted!!
