Three people were killed in a shooting that occurred near the campus of Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas yesterday.

Texas constable and two others were killed Monday in a shooting near Texas A&M University, police said.


Rhonda Seaton, a spokeswoman with the College Station police department, told CNN that the three people killed were the constable, the man authorities say opened fire on law enforcement officers and an unidentified civilian.


A few minutes earlier, Asst. Chief Scott McCollum, from the same police department, told reporters that at least four people — two law enforcement officers and two civilians — were shot in the incident, which occurred around noon just a few blocks from the Texas A&M campus.


The dead included Brian Bachman, the constable for Brazos County, according to McCollum.


A male civilian was also killed, the assistant police chief said.
