This is a mixture of Fire, EMS and police traffic from the shootings this afternoon in College Station, Texas.
A Brazos County constable was killed in a shooting that injured others near the Texas A&M University campus Monday afternoon, according to a source with the county.
Police said the suspect, who was taken into custody, was firing shots from a house near the campus across from the football stadium Kyle Field. The identity and conditions of those injured are not yet known.
One of two officers shot during an incident on Fidelity Street in College Station has died, according to several sources.
At least five people were taken to the College Station Medical Center but it wasn’t known if all were gunshot victims.
The incident appears to have unfolded about 12:15 p.m. at a house in the historical district of the city close to George Bush Drive.
Texas police took a shooter into custody Monday after receiving reports of multiple injuries near the Texas A&M University campus, officials said.
The university issued an alert on its just before 12:30 p.m. 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.
College Station Police spokeswoman Rhonda Seaton told The Dallas Morning News that law enforcement officers are among “multiple injuries” at the scene, which she says is within a block or two of campus. Seaton says she does know the extent of the injuries. Multiple calls to Seaton’s cellphone from the Associated Press went straight to voicemail Monday afternoon. Text messages and emails also were left for the spokeswoman.
Texas A&M spokeswoman Sherylon Carroll could not confirm any injuries or 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.
