COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Former President George H.W. Bush has sent “heartfelt condolences” to victims of a deadly shooting near Texas A&M University, home to his presidential library.

Bush, who spends his summers in Maine, released a statement Tuesday saying he and former first lady Barbara Bush can’t understand “the senselessness that led to this shocking series of events,” but they believe the incident will unite the Bryan-College Station community.

Authorities say 41-year-old Brazos County Constable Brian Bachmann and a bystander were fatally shot when Bachmann tried to deliver a notice in eviction proceedings to the rented home of 35-year-old Thomas Alton Caffall III. Police say officers killed Caffall in a shootout. Four others were injured.

The George Bush Presidential Library Center is a 90-acre area on the College Station campus.
