A male civilian also was killed, while two other officers and a woman were injured in the shooting in College Station, said Bryan Police Department spokesman Jon Agnew.

Assistant College Station Police Chief Scott McCollum earlier identified the law enforcement officer killed as Brazos County Constable Brian Bachmann.

The University put a number of ‘code maroon’ warnings on its website today, saying:

CSPD reports an active shooter in the area immediately southeast of the intersection of Welborn Rd and George Bush Drive. Please avoid the area. Residents in the immediate area need to remain inside their residence.

It said that the shooter was located at the 200 block of Fidelity Drive. said the man was shooting from a house and using automatic weapons.
