"A&M University" "Texas shooting" "Brian Bachmann" "Thomas Caffall" "shootings near Texas" "Texas A&M University" "A&M University shooting" "breaking news" news "breaking today" "Shooting (Disaster Type)" Texas constable and two others were shot dead Monday in about a half an hour of gunfire 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 a Brazos County constable, the man authorities say exchanged gunfire with law enforcement officers and a male civilian. The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund noted that the slain constable, Brian Bachmann, is the sixth law enforcement official killed so far this year in Texas. 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 -- a position that involves, among other duties, serving court documents such as eviction notices and subpoenas to citizens -- was set to expire on December 31, 2014.
