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.
