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

Scott McCollum, assistant chief with the College Station police department, told reporters Monday afternoon that the three people killed were the constable, the man authorities say exchanged gunfire with law enforcement officers and an unidentified 65-year-old male civilian.

The dead included Brian Bachmann, a constable in Brazos County, according to McCollum. According to his Facebook campaign page, Bachmann was a 41-year-old from College Station who had been a Brazos County sheriff's deputy since 1993. The county's website indicated that his four-year term as constable was set to expire on December 31, 2014.


Four others suffered injuries in the prolonged ordeal, which occurred a few blocks from the Texas A&M campus.

They include a law enforcement officer who was shot in the calf and two other officers who suffered "non-life threatening injuries," McCollum said. A 55-year-old female civilian was also shot and was undergoing surgery Monday afternoon at a hospital, according to the assistant police chief.

A law enforcement veteran of 19 years was making what was supposed to be a routine house call to serve an eviction notice at a property near the Texas A&M University campus. But the recipient opened fire and shots were exchanged, leaving him, the police constable and another man mortally wounded.

Wonder if we can thank OWS for this. They don't like evictions.

They did a good job containing the situation and preventing a massacre.

Yep. Great job. Those police officers should be promoted.
