COLLEGE STATION (CBS Houston) – Officials at Texas A&M University say three people are dead after a shooting near the College Station campus.

During a Bryan Police Department news conference, officials confirmed that Brazos County Constable Brian Bachman and a male civilian had both been shot and killed. Minutes after that information was released police said the suspected gunman, who was also shot, had died.

The deceased constable was married and a father of two young children.

At least two police officers and a female civilian were also injured. The names of the injured officers and civilian have not yet been released.

According to sources, the shooter lives close to the Texas A&M campus and received an eviction notice today.

The university issued a warning 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.

College Station lies about 90 miles northwest of Houston.

The A&M shooting comes a week after a man was shot dead near the University of Illinois at Chicago campus. Other deadly school gun violence this year included seven killed at Asian religious vocational school in east Oakland, two graduate students from China killed near the USC in California, and and three people wounded near Eastern Michigan University.
