Police: Gunman in shooting near Texas A&M has died; in addition to 2 others

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) -- Police said the gunman in shooting near Texas A&M has died; authorities already announced one officer and a civilian were killed. A second officer was injured near the university campus in College Station, Texas.

Bryan Police spokesman Jon Agnew says the shooter is in custody Monday. Agnew says officers have established a perimeter around the area just east of campus, but they don't believe a second suspect is involved.

Agnew says police don't know if shooter was a student at A&M.

Bryan is College Station's sister city and its officers are assisting in the case.

College Station police spokeswoman Rhonda Seaton tells The Dallas Morning News there are multiple injuries, including to law enforcement officers, but she doesn't know the extent of the injuries. Multiple calls to Seaton's cellphone from The Associated Press have gone straight to voicemail.

The university issued an alert 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.

Seaton says the shooting happened within a block or two of campus sometime before 12:45 p.m. She says police have one suspect in custody.

College Station lies about 90 miles northwest of Houston.
