COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — A law enforcement officer attacked as he approached a home near the Texas A&M University campus was killed along with a male civilian in a Monday shoot-out that also left the gunman dead, police said.

Two other law enforcement officers and a woman were injured in the shooting in College Station, said Bryan Police Department spokesman Jon Agnew. Bryan police are assisting in the investigation.

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

McCollum said Bachmann had gone to an off-campus home near Kyle Field, the A&M football stadium, when the gunman opened fire from inside the house. He said he didn't know why Bachmann had gone to the home.

Other officers responded to the home after receiving a call that an officer was down. They shot the gunman and took him into custody, McCollum said. The gunman was later pronounced dead.

The two other injured officers were hospitalized and the civilian woman was undergoing surgery, Agnew said.

Agnew said officers had established a perimeter around the area shortly after the shooting just east of the Texas A&M campus, but they do not believe a second suspect was involved. He said police don't know if the shooter was a student at the university.
