Just heard the news regarding another mass shooting, this time in my own backyard — at Texas A&M University:
Texas A&M University says a shooter has been taken into custody near its campus in College Station.
College Station police spokeswoman Rhonda Seaton tells CNN multiple people have been shot, including law enforcement, but she doesn’t know the extent of the injuries.
Multiple calls to Seaton’s cellphone from The Associated Press have gone straight to voicemail.
The university issued an alert on its website just before 12:30 p.m. Monday warning of an active shooter near the campus football stadium, Kyle Field.
The warning tells residents and students to avoid the area.
Seaton says the shooting happened within a block or two of campus sometime before 12:45 p.m. She says police have one suspect in custody.
If the last couple weeks’ worth of mass shootings have been any indication, this guy was probably a well-established nut, too. When, oh when, will we repent of the error of deinstitutionalization?
