(CNN) -- Police took a man into custody Monday after "multiple people" were shot near Texas A&M University, a police official said.
Several law enforcement officers were among the people shot, Rhonda Seaton of the College Station Police Department told CNN. She didn't have information on how many people were shot or their conditions.
She said a person identified as the gunman was in custody. The shooting happened about one block from campus, Seaton said.
Officer Jon Agnew with the Bryan Police Department said at least one civilian had been injured. Bryan is adjacent to College Station.
Police are still at the scene making "sure there aren't multiple suspects," Officer Jason James of the Bryan Police Department said.
James said the first call was that an officer was down and shots had been fired.
After the initial report, the university warned people to stay away from the intersection of Welborn Road and George Bush Drive as well as part of Fidelity Drive in College Station, Texas.

I knew VT was going to have a break down if he got banned, but I didn't expect him to actually kill any cops

Like I said with James Holmes and Kirk, what if one of us actually did become one of these guys?

RIP Constable Brian Bachmann, Brazos County Texas.
X2. Shit is fucked up. Basically an ambush that really could have not been stopped. My buddy at CSPD says could have been a lot worse.

Rapid response by nearby units kept this piece of shit from getting mobile. There are lots of students and summer camps about 200 yards from this place. There was a 30 minute gun battle. That's a fucking long time.

Good work by the responding departments. There were at least 6 agencies responding and dealing with this. Even the Game Warden showed up.

Thomas Caffall, Texas A&M Shooting Suspect, Had Mental 'Difficulties,' Mom Says



A Texas man facing eviction opened fire on police officers and bystanders near the Texas A&M University campus Monday afternoon, killing two and wounding four before being shot to death by police, authorities said.

The dead included Brian Bachmann, a Brazos County constable serving an eviction notice, and Chris Northcliff, 51, of College Station.

Police identified the shooter as Thomas A. Caffall, 35, of College Station. Caffall's mother, Linda Weaver, reached by The Huffington Post, said her son was having "difficulties" with his mental health in recent years.

"The minute I saw the TV I knew it was him," said Weaver. "I've been that worried about him."
Caffall opened fire from inside his single-family home, according to Rigo Cisneros, 40, who witnessed the shooting from across the street. Cisneros, an Army medic and Afghanistan veteran, saw police exchanging gunfire with Caffall, who remained within the house. Caffall was shot several times by officers who stormed the house after a shootout that lasted roughly 30 minutes, Cisneros said.

A badly wounded Caffall was dragged from the house by officers. Cisneros attempted to provide first aid. While he was being treated, Caffall, mumbling his words, "asked me to apologize to the police officer," Cisneros said.

Caffall, Bachmann and Northcliff were pronounced dead at the hospital. Two other College Station police officers were injured in the gunfight. Another woman, approximately 55 years old, was rushed into surgery. Her name was not released by police. None of the injuries appeared life-threatening, police said.

Officers Justin Oehlke and Brad Smith were treated and released from the hospital. Officer Phil Dorsett was treated at the scene.

A Facebook page belonging to Caffall features several photos of assault rifles, including a Czech-made version of the AK-47. On the page, Caffall identified himself as divorced, with “Christian” religious beliefs. He lists a series of snipers, including Carlos Hathcock and Vasily Zaytsev, as "inspirational people."

"I am pulling a cross between Forrest Gump and Jack Kerouac (without the drugs),” Caffall wrote on the site. “I'm on the road, permanently.”

Caffall commented on Facebook about several recent gun purchases, including a vintage Russian rifle. “I just got a new toy,” he wrote in May 2011. “I’ll be at the gun range as much as I can.”

Weaver, his mother, said she had been estranged from her son over the past several months. She said he had not visited her after she became seriously ill.

"We are just devastated,” Weaver said. “He's been very deeply troubled."

She added that she was horrified at the loss of life. "If you're going to commit suicide, why take all these other people with you?" she said.

In an interview with KPRC, a local television station, Caffall’s stepfather, Richard Weaver, said Caffall was a “ticking time bomb” who quit his job nine months ago and vowed never to work again.

"He was crazy as hell," Weaver said. "At one point, we were afraid that he was going to come up here and do something to his mother and me."

Because when there is an officer down call, everyone goes. It does not matter what agency, you go. There was College Station PD, Bryan PD, Brazos County Sheriff, Texas Highway Patrol, Texas A&M University Police, Texas Parks and Wildlife (game warden), Constables, etc. You get the idea.


Been reading on the Deputy that died and he seemed like a super nice guy. Left a wife and 2 young children. Sad.

I just don't see what he could do besides get in the way. The same goes for the campus cops. Let the real cops handle it.
