    3 are dead. One they think is a police officer and one is the gunman...

    Happened three blocks from the intramural fields where they play the 7-on-7 state tournament every summer. I was there just three weeks ago. Other than the location, though, the shooting doesn't appear related to the university.

    Apparently cops were serving an eviction notice. Thanks again banksters!

    I'm told the wounded woman was the mother of a TAMU student. She was helping her daughter move from the neighborhood when the shooting started.

    The shooter was a 36-year-old man who had a history of mental issues.

    Is this being labeled " domestic terrorism" ?

    Guns don't kill people, right?

    You are absolutely correct. Guns do not kill people. Bullets kill people...
