Serving an eviction notice near Texas A&M University turned deadly for Brazos County Constable Brian Bachmann when the resident opened fire on him, leading to the death of the officer and another man before the gunman was killed.

The violence Monday left a neighborhood shaken, a law enforcement community in mourning and the family of 35-year-old gunman Thomas Alton Caffall "distraught by the havoc that he has caused."

Officers responding to the scene exchanged shots with Caffall, 35, for nearly 30 minutes.

By then, Caffall and Bachmann had been mortally wounded. So was 43-year-old Chris Northcliff, of College Station, who was apparently caught up in the gunfire.

Police wouldn't speculate on what sparked the deadly outburst, which is the latest shooting nationwide resulting in multiple deaths in recent weeks.
