Investigators are sharing details of a violent scene that unfolded Thursday afternoon in a rural neighborhood in south Brazos County that left three people dead including a person armed with a gun.
A spokesman for the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office says deputies and state troopers responded around 3:30 p.m. to private property on Stokes Circle near Pipeline Road for a disturbance involving someone who was armed.
Deputies say when they arrived, the suspect was still armed and they attempted to deescalate the situation but the suspect refused to follow commands to put down the gun and was eventually shot and killed by a state trooper.
As law enforcement officers worked to secure the scene and clear the area they found two other people on the property who are deceased.
Investigators declined to say how the other two died or what their relationship is to the gunman.
The names and ages of everyone involved have not been released but deputies did say that the situation did not involve a nearby assisted living facility.
“The Brazos County Sheriff’s Office, the Brazos County District Attorney’s Office, and the Texas Rangers are all working together to investigate this tragic incident. As we are very early on in this investigation, we will provide more details as they are discovered. No officers were injured during this incident,” said Deputy spokesman David Wilcox. “We would like to thank Texas DPS, Brazos County District Attorney’s Office, Texas A&M Police Department, Bryan Police Department, College Station Fire Department and Medical Services, and the Brazos County Volunteer Fire Department PCT. 1 for their assistance during this incident.”
The area where the investigation is ongoing is near Peach Creek Cutoff between the new Southern Pointe community and Peach Creek Road.
