COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Thousands of people are expected to attend a funeral service for a law enforcement officer who was among three killed in a shootout near Texas A&M University.
The service for Brazos County Constable Brian Bachmann will be held Saturday afternoon at Reed Arena on the A&M campus in College Station.
Bachmann was fatally shot Monday by Thomas Caffall III. The 41-year-old constable was trying to serve a court summons to Caffall for being two months behind on rent. Other officers fatally shot Caffall. His family has said he was suffering from an unspecified mental illness.
A bystander checking some property also was killed. Three police officers and a female bystander were wounded.
Bachmann had worked nearly 20 years in law enforcement. He was married and had four children.
