    A number of people, both civilians and police officers, have been injured after shots were fired outside a Texas A&M University campus.

    It is not yet clear how many people were injured in the shooting, but local media are reporting that the gunman has been taken into custody.

    Earlier reports also suggested that the shooter was firing automatic weapons from inside a house close to the campus.

    A Code Maroon warning was posted on the A&M website, warning students to stay away from the area.

    Just talked to some friends there. Word is that the police showed up to serve an arrest warrant and someone started firing automatic weapons from the house. Six people shot, two of them cops and several have pretty critical injuries.

    a lot of times early reports claim automatic weapons. Probably a semi automatic. I guess the guy really wanted to keep his place.

    i'd be hard pressed to believe it was an automatic as those are VERY tough to get (legally) and you are heavily canvased before being allowed the permit to own one.
