Police in College Station, Texas, say several people have been shot after a gunman opened fire with automatic weapons from a house near Fidelity and Highland streets.

Texas A&M University issued a Code Maroon to students around 12:30 this afternoon, telling students to remain in their residences or else avoid the area entirely.

CSPD reported that the as-yet-unidentified shooter was in custody as of 12:44 PM, but residents are still being warned against approaching the area.

KCEN says six people were shot; the Brazos Valley Reporter claims one person is confirmed dead and at least two officers are among the victims.

More information will be posted as it becomes available.

UPDATE: The Eagle is reporting that one of the two officers shot during this afternoon's incident has died. Five victims are being treated at College Station Medical Center. According to KBTX, "three had sustained gunshot wounds, with two complaining of dizziness and chest pain." Another female victim was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital in Bryan. Her condition is unknown.

A CSPD press conference is expected to begin shortly, and can be streamed live on the KBTX website.
