Shooting at Texas A&M-Commerce

Incident leaves two dead, one injured

Posted

Two people died and one was taken to the hospital following a shooting on the Texas A&M-Commerce campus Monday, according to university officials.

At 10:17 a.m. a student called university police from the Pride Rock Residence Hall. When officers arrived they found two dead women and an injured 2-year-old boy. The child is in stable condition at a local hospital, said Bryan Vaughn, Chief of the Texas A&M-Commerce Police, in a statement. University officials have not yet said whether the two women were students or otherwise affiliated with the school.

The shooting occurred at the Pride Rock Residence Hall, a three story co-ed dorm for freshmen students. University police are still investigating the case.

The school's lockdown, which lasted about two hours, was lifted Monday afternoon.

Officers are still stationed throughout the school's campus. Pride Rock and surrounding areas are blocked off. All Monday classes were cancelled.

Texas A&M-Commerce is about 65 miles northeast from Dallas. The school has about 6,000 undergraduate students and about 4,000 graduate students.

Last October, two people died and several more were injured after gunfire broke out at a late-night party in Greenville, meant to celebrate Texas A&M University-Commerce’s homecoming.
