College Station, Texas home of the Texas A&M, was the scene of another shooting crime that took the lives of two innocent people and the gunman. The incident took place when Brazos County Constable Brian Bachmann attempted to serve an eviction notice to Thomas Caffall, at a residence just blocks from the Texas A&M campus. When Bachmann attempted to serve the notice, Caffall gunned him down.
The close-knit university community has been rattled by the violence on Monday, while those in the area’s law enforcement community mourned Bachmann, one of their own. The gunman’s family issued a statement that said they were distraught over all the tragedy Caffall had caused.
At just after noon on Monday, dispatchers at 911 started receiving frantic calls reporting the shooting. When officers arrived, they saw the Constable prone on the ground and started receiving gunfire from Caffall. They also saw another man, later identified as Chris Northcliff, a resident of the city, dead on the ground from a bullet wound.
After more than 30 minutes of exchanging fire, the police were able to finally shoot and kill Caffall. However, a woman in her fifties was hit by the gunfire from Caffall and was in serious condition at a local hospital. Three officers were also wounded and treated at an area hospital.
The police department from College Station said that Caffall, 35, had been shot and then taken to the Medical Center where doctors pronounced him dead. Northcliff was shot in the gunfight said the police and Bachmann was killed as he served the eviction notice.
