COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - The family of a gunman killed in a shootout near the Texas A&M campus that also left two other people dead say they are "distraught by the havoc that he has caused."
Police say Thomas Alton Caffall, 35, opened fire on Brazos County Constable Brian Bachmann just after noon Monday as the lawman brought an eviction notice. Both men were later pronounced dead at a hospital.
A 43-year-old man was the third person killed in the shootings at an off-campus home not far from the university's football stadium, College Station Assistant Police Chief Scott McCollum said. Three other law enforcement officers and a 55-year-old woman were wounded, he said.
Responding officers got into what McCollum described as an extended shootout with Caffall, who eventually was shot.
