    He was shooting from a house near campus....

    So this could have been a domestic dispute, a drug thing, a crazy guy off his rocker, or any other number of things.

    I'll wait for details before I start trying to shove him into any specific mold.

    That's right; nobody knows much yet about the shooter. One cop is dead, and the local paper says "mass casualties." I don't know exactly what this means either.

    The Internet is unbelievably fast, but it's not necessarily accurate. We need to wait for more information.

    I'm going to stand by my orginal assumption that this cat is ****ed in the head. That's a safe assumption, I believe.

    From the Houston Chronicle:

    One police officer was killed in today's shooting and another was injured in a shooting near the Texas A&M University campus in College Station and students are being advised to avoid the area, KBTX-TV is reporting.

    At least three civilians were taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds and more were injured, KBTX-TV reported.

    The shooter, who fired from a house with automatic weapons, was taken into custody before 1 p.m.

    He may fit into multiple molds, but crazy is certainly one of them. I don't see any way a sane person does this.

    We don't even know what "this" is yet.

    All we know is shots were fired, he was holed up in a house/building of some kind, and several people were injured and one killed.

    We don't know how the police came to be there.
    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.
