College Station police responded about 12:10 p.m. Monday to a house on Fidelity Street near George Bush Drive in College Station, Texas. College Station police discovered a Brazos County constable down in the front yard, and found themselves in a barricade situation with an exchange of gunfire. Police shot and killed the suspect after a foot chase toward Wellborn Road. Early reports were that “multiple people” were shot near Texas A&M University. In total three people were killed — the suspect, a Brazos County Constable, and an unidentified 65-year-old male civilian. Three others were reported injured, including a College Station police officer. Two victims were transported to College Station Medical Center. A 55-year-old woman was transported to St. Joseph Regional Health Center Emergency Department in Bryan. Other police officers may have received minor non-shooting related injuries.

The offender was initially reported to be in custody, but later word spread that he led police on a short foot chase to Wellborn Road and was shot and killed. The neighborhood was also reported secured by about 12:50 p.m. when police believed they had shot the only shooter. Police still checked for any other possible offenders and worked to secure and preserve the crime, while firefighter/paramedics treated and transported injured victims.

Two College Station police officers that arrived on scene were immediately the targets of gunfire near the address of 305 Fidelity Street. They immediately called for backup. Police saw that a Brazos County Sheriff Constable was down in the front yard at the address. Police engaged the gunman, who was believed to be inside a wood frame house on the northwest corner of Fidelity Street and Highland Street. The front door was wide open, but was later closed, apparently by the offender, according to police radio communications. Police helped arriving backup police officer, detectives and SWAT members identify the location of the shooter by referring to the location where the constable’s vehicle was parked.

The Brazos County Constable was given CPR and transported to the hospital. A College Station police officer was also shot — a non-life-threatening gunshot wound in the leg. Two civilians were also shot — a female, who was in surgery immediately after the shooting, and a male, who is deceased. The Brazos County Sheriff Constable as been identified by College Station police spokesman as Brian Bachmann, age 41.

The constable was apparently at the address to serve an eviction notice or to carry out an eviction process. College Station police spokesman Scott McCollum provided information to news media during a press conference, and stated that the constable had gone to the residence to deliver an “eviction notice.”

Early in the incident, a the 55-year-old woman was found next to the passenger-side of her black Lexus with gunshot wounds. Rescuers couldn’t get to her until they were sure they had protection or cover from gunfire or until the scene was secured.

Police and fire communications audio immediately after the response to the 300 block of Fidelity Street for the report of a shooter with gunshot victims.
