A gunman on Monday opened fire on approaching police officers near Texas A&M University campus, killing two people and wounding two others.
The gunman opened fire near his home located near the Texas A&M University campus. Due to the shots, a constable died, while the shooter himself was killed after officers responded to the situation. The incident took place at around mid-day Monday. There were many witnesses who saw the entire proceedings of the shooting incident.
According to details, a constable by the name of Brian Bachmann approached the gunman's house at 211 Fidelity Street located about two blocks from the Texas A&M campus. Upon approaching his house, the constable asked him to come out and at that instance, the gunman, who is still unidentified, opened fire at the constable.
A witness, identified as Rigo Cisneros, 40, an Army medic who served a tour in Afghanistan, saw the entire shooting taking place before him, and according to washingtonpost.com, he reported, “After the fourth or fifth shot, I stuck my head out the door and could hear actual gunfire. I took cover and observed that there was an officer down.”
Mr. Cisneros said that the shooting lasted for around 30 minutes and eventually ended when the suspect was shot down by the police officers. He said that after it had ended, he ran outside to help with the situation. When he reached the constable, he noticed that he had a bullet in his chest and he was already not moving. Another officer was wounded, but he did not need immediate medical attention, so Mr. Cisneros moved on to the suspect. He said that the suspect had been shot multiple times in the legs and the upper torso. After a while the paramedics arrived and he was taken to the hospital. He could not survive his wounds, and passed away after reaching the hospital. Two other passers-by were also wounded, and one of them was a woman.
People living on the Fidelity Street and those present at the Texas A&M campus were advised not to go out when the shooting was taking place. It is not clear yet that why did the constable go to the suspect's place the first time and what he was guilty of.
