**URGENT** The Eagle- Gunman spotted on Texas A&M campus. Students being told to seek shelter immediately.
(Texas A&M Update) KTBX- Bus driver on Texas A&M campus reported seeing a man with an AK-47 gun.
Message sent to Texas A&M students: “Code Maroon: Sighting of armed subject at Rudder Tower. SEEK SAFE SHELTER until further notice.”
Deer Season starts in Texas now. Hope that’s all it was.
As opposed to an unarmed gunman?
Well...not with a AK47...
Pray no one is hurt.

Just checked NBS time and reset my computer by 1/10 of a second. This news release is 9 minutes in the future.
Why is always an AK-47? Wonder if a deer hunter was spotted with his/her gun in the rack...
Is that anything like a no armed gunman?
CNN: BREAKING- Person who answered phone at Texas A&M admissions says they have received reports of a gunmen on campus (via TWITTER)
Call out the Corps.
I have two nephews and a niece at A&M. Prayers up that this is just a fluke of some kind.
Forrest says “Stupid Is as Stupid Does!”
Are they sure its not an unarmed gunman?
Probably a guy with a rake again.
Let’s hope they have CCW on campus.
A teacher saved the day with his 30-06 back in the day at the Texas school tower shootings.
Maybe if we make all of our campus’s “Gun Free Zones” this sort of thing will stop. < /Libtard mode off>
Prayers up for your newphews and neice and all innocents at Texas A&M.
My son is presently in the Engineering program at A&M. Hopefully this is a mistake but I’ll guarantee you there are more than a few armed students at A&M.
Newphews = nephews.
Maybe it’s like the one the other day that turned out to be a NERF gun .....
What do they tell the students if a tornado's coming - to lock and load?!
Another Aggie attempting to keep up with the Longhorns.
Actually, there were several people with their hunting rifles keeping the shooter at bay while local officials tracked him down and shot him.
Just went through this with my daughter who goes to UT.
PRAYER UP! for TAMU
“Gunman is white”. Alert the MSM....
Update Poss - gunman on campus is white, wearing green clothing and carrying a backpack. A SWAT team is on its way now. (TWITTER)
They are making great strides in the area of thought-controlled prosthetics...
“Gunman spotted on Texas A&M campus.”
Have there been shots fired? I mean this IS Texas after all, this could be perfectly innocent.
I didn’t realize there was more then one. I had heard that a teacher was firing at him and a student was handing the teacher ammo.
My bad, thought you wrote prophylactics.
Many people who ran home, got their guns and came back to keep the perp's head down long enough for someone to go up and kill him. Who knows how many lives they saved, as they prevented him from shooting anybody else for quite a while.
Of course, today they'd all be arrested for bringing a weapon on campus, discharging a firearm within city limits, and violating noise ordinances.

According to KBTX-TV, former First Lady Laura Bush is currently on the campus of Texas A&M University.

“”My bad, thought you wrote prophylactics.”””
Don’t worry, comments like that just go in one ear and out the rubber.
Maybe it was just gun class. A blank went off.
Also, I think a couple of shootings have been stopped in this manner.
“TULSA, OK — Tulsa Police say one of two men shot during a violent home invasion early Thursday morning has died. They identified him as 18-year-old Darreon Carter.
Carter was shot in the head and leg. The second suspect, 23-year-old Daniel Holman, remains in critical condition in a Tulsa hospital. He was shot in the head and stomach.
The men were shot by the resident in the apartment in what police say was a case of self-defense.
The incident happened at the Brighton Park Apartments at 51st and Yale shortly after a resident called 911 and said two intruders had been shot during a robbery. Tulsa Police were called to the scene shortly after 4 a.m. where they say a resident in the apartment fought back.
Police say a woman had just entered her apartment when two men forced their way inside and demanded money.
The suspects were armed with screwdrivers and demanded money. After the victim gave them money, they told her to take her clothes off but she refused.
The commotion awoke the woman’s boyfriend who came out of the bedroom and began struggling with the two intruders.
Police say the woman then got a handgun out of her purse and shot both intruders.
Carter died late Thursday morning.”
Wow - now it’s getting a little crazy.
Secret service will get’em.
Let the SS go after him...
Charles Whitman, back in '66? There were plenty of armed civilians who kept him from taking careful aim after his first round of shooting, but it was two Austin police officers who finally made their way onto the Texas Tower observation deck and shot Whitman.
What's the story on the teacher with the 30-06?
Right now it's 4:48PM in Texas. This is no accident.
