Possible Gunman at Texas A&M

From Star-Telegram


COLLEGE STATION — A person armed with a gun has been sighted at Rudder Tower at Texas A&M University in College Station, according to an alert issued by the school.

University officials issued a “Code Maroon” alert at 4:10 p.m. that advised those on campus to seek shelter until further notice.

The Bryan-College Station Eagle reported that the person was described as a white male who was reportedly carrying an AK-47-style weapon.

Former President George H.W. Bush, Barbara Bush and Laura W. Bush were scheduled to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the on-campus George Bush Presidential Library Center at 5 p.m.

University spokesman Lane Stephenson told The Associated Press that a campus bus driver was on his route around 4 p.m. Thursday when he reported seeing an individual carrying a weapon, possibly a rifle, near the student union.

The university’s Web site says students should remain indoors while police search the buildings.
