PLEASE PRAY!

Please help us get a prayer chain started for our community.

Today another tragedy hit the Bryan / College Station / Texas A&M community.

Just south of the campus of Texas A&M - a man opened fire and killed 1 County Constable and 1 civilian. The shooter also wounded 2 others, including an officer who responded to the scene.

Officers then wounded the shooter, who later died.

  • 3 are deceased - 1 officer, 1 civilian, and the shooter.
  • 2 others are shot and in the hospital - 1 officer and 1 civilian.
  • 2 other officers were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

We request your urgent prayers for those involved, esp. the deceased and their families and friends.
Please share with others!

UPDATE #1 - Mass at 5:30 PM will be offered for the victims of the shooting and their families.

UPDATE #2 - Constable Bachmann was serving an eviction notice, when the shooter opened fire. Two officers were close-by when the Constable Bachmann was shot. They responded quickly and engaged the shooter and shot him.

The male civilian who was shot and killed has not been identified yet.

The female civilian is still in surgery.

If there's a problem with doing so, please let me know, and I'll remove the Google+ post.

This is, obviously, a sad situation.
