    We don't know who shot first or if the police ever shot at all.
    We don't know if there was a stand off of some kind, or a chase, or if a call for suspicious activity was submitted to 911.

    A perfectly sane person, when backed into a corner, will do an awful lot for a chance at survival/freedom from the threat. It's actually an instinctual imperative.
    A constable came to evict him and he barracaded himself in his home, then shot the constable.

    From the Eagle:

    Constable Brian Bachmann, a longtime deputy with the Brazos County Sheriff’s Department, apparently was serving paperwork at the home near the Texas A&M campus.

    Thank you! Wonder if it was actually an eviction notice or something else. Shame to kill others and end up dead yourself over anything the constable might have been dropping off.

    A gunman who was reportedly firing shots with an automatic weapon near the campus of Texas A&M University has been taken in by police.

    The Houston Chronicle is reporting two police officers were injured during the incident.

    From what I've read, constables working for the sheriff's office serve eviction notices. I've also read that this was a rent-house owned by a civil engineering prof.

    Thats a safe bet, given how few have ever been used in a mass shooting.

    I believe there have only been 2 legally purchased automatics used in mass shootings since 1934.

    What do you think is the weapon shown in the following photos from the scene? (too big to post)

    I don't see "the weapon" in either pic.
