COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Authorities say the gunman in a deadly shootout near Texas A&M University was fatally wounded by officers who responded to reports of gunfire.
College Station police Chief Jeff Capps said Tuesday that 35-year-old Thomas Alton Caffall III had "long guns and pistols" in his home when Brazos County Constable Brian Bachmann showed up to deliver an eviction notice Monday.
Capps says Bachmann was fatally wounded as he approached Caffall's rental home. A bystander, College Station resident Chris Northcliff, also died in the shootout. Police confirmed his age as 51 on Tuesday.
Police did not say whose gunfire hit the other victims.
Capps says he had no other details on the weapons found in Caffall's home.
He said he wasn't aware of any previous law enforcement contact with the gunman.
