Police: Three Dead After Shooting Near Texas A&M

(The Blaze/AP) --  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.

Fox News has the latest:

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 university issued an alert on its website just before 12:30 p.m. Monday warning of an active shooter near the campus football stadium, Kyle Field.

The warning tells residents and students to avoid the area.

Here is the press conference:

College Station lies about 90 miles northwest of Houston, and is home to roughly 50,000 students.

This is a breaking story.  Updates will be added.
