Some sad news came out of the Texas area this afternoon when three people were killed and multiple people wounded by a gunman just a few blocks from the Texas A&M campus in College Station.
The shooter has since been taken into custody but not before Texas A&M issued a Code Maroon – the university’s emergency notification system — at 12:29 p.m., telling people to avoid the area where there was a report of an “active shooter.”
Texas A&M soccer coach G Guerrieri sent out the following tweet:
@aggiesoccer players and staff are all fine.Thanks for the well wishes.Thoughts and prayers to the victims of this shocking incident.
