COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Police say a gunman has died after a shooting that killed a law enforcement officer and another civilian near the Texas A&M University campus.
 
Bryan Police Department spokesman Jon Agnew said two other law enforcement officers and another woman also were injured in the Monday shooting in College Station. Bryan police are assisting in the investigation.
 
Assistant College Station Police Chief Scott McCollum earlier identified the officer killed as Brazos County Constable Brian Bachmann.
 
The university issued a warning on its website just before 12:30 p.m. Monday warning of an active shooter near the campus football stadium, Kyle Field. The warning tells residents and students to avoid the area.

The university later said the shooter was taken into custody, but warned residents and students to still avoid the area.

College Station lies about 90 miles northwest of Houston.
