Born and raised in Texas with a lot of friends who studied at Texas A&M University, facebook was the first to alert me of the tragedy in College Station today. Comments down my newsfeed were quickly confirmed by a report from CNN.com stating that a shooter responsible killing an officer and two civilians was apprehended just one block from campus a few hours ago. They have not released the name of the man in custody, but we do know that one of the victims was the constable Brian Bachman.
Our hearts go out to the students and family at Texas A&M. For those of you following the story, get the latest updates on twitter here.
