COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) â?? Police say a gunman was being served an eviction notice before he opened fire from inside a home near Texas A&M and killed a law enforcement officer.
College Station Assistant Police Chief Scott McCollum says Brazos County Constable Brian Bachmann was among three people, including the gunman, killed in a shootout at the house Monday.
McCollum says a 65-year-old man was the third person killed. A woman and three law enforcement officers also were injured.
McCollum says Bachmann went to the off-campus home near A&M's football stadium early Monday afternoon when the gunman opened fire. Other officers responded to the scene after receiving a call that an officer was down.
The shooting prompted Texas A&M to send out an alert warning students and residents to stay away from the area.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) â?? Texas A&M University says a shooter has been taken into custody near its campus in College Station.
College Station police spokeswoman Rhonda Seaton tells CNN multiple people have been shot, including law enforcement, but she doesn't know the extent of the injuries. Multiple calls to Seaton's cellphone from The Associated Press have gone straight to voicemail.
The university issued an alert on its website just before 12:30 p.m. Monday warning of an active shooter near the campus football stadium, Kyle Field. The warning tells residents and students to avoid the area.
Seaton says the shooting happened within a block or two of campus sometime before 12:45 p.m. She says police have one suspect in custody.
College Station lies about 90 miles northwest of Houston.
