Shooting at Texas A&M

[Content Note: Terrorism; guns.]

There has been another shooting, this time on the Texas A&M campus. According to KBTX, the suspect is in custody. At least one police officer has been shot, and there is one confirmed victim at St. Joseph Hospital, who may or may not be the injured officer. There is no word on her condition.

The total number of injured is unknown, and there are no confirmed fatalities. Which doesn't mean, unfortunately, that there are no fatalities. [ETA. Unfortunately, there are fatalities. See update(s) below.]

My thoughts are with those on the campus and in the surrounding area. I'm so sorry.

I'll update if/when additional information becomes available.

UPDATE 1: Fuck.
Police have confirmed that a law enforcement officer has died after injuries sustained during a shooting in an incident near Fidelity St. in College Station near the Texas A&M Campus.

CSPD says that more than one law enforcement officer had been shot in the incident, and that there were multiple citizens injured in the shooting.

Representatives for the College Station Medical Center say five patients have been admitted to the emergency room. Three had sustained gunshot wounds, with two complaining of dizziness and chest pain.
UPDATE 2: CNN is reporting that three people were killed in the shooting: One police constable and two civilians. Three others were injured, including "two law enforcement officers, including one who was shot in the leg, and a female civilian who was undergoing surgery at a hospital."

There are reports that say the shooting starting during an eviction.
