Texas A&M Issues a "Code Maroon"; Two Cops Shot, Suspect Arrested (UPDATED w/Constable Death)

Texas A&M officials issued a "Code Maroon" warning to the nearly empty College Station campus in connection with an incident in which two law-enforcement officers were shot.

An "active shooter" in the 200 block of Fidelity near campus caused the warning, and the school warned students to avoid the area or stay inside if they lived near there.

By 12:44 p.m., the school reported the shooter was in custody, although further details were unavailable.

The Bryan-College Station Eagle reports two officers were wounded in the shooting and the suspect then barricaded himself in a house.

UPDATE: Law enforcement officials are holding a press conference, and news media have been adding details. Included are the announcements:

-- College Station police report one officer, constable Brian Bachmann, has died in the shooting, the Eagle reports. (A campaign Facebook page has begun to gather memorials to the slain officer.)

-- The incident began with officers trying to serve an eviction notice.

-- A civilian has also been killed, according to various media Twitter reports, as has the shooter, whose name has not yet been released.

-- Four people were injured in the incident.
