The nutters are coming out of the woodwork.....
(CNN) -- A Texas constable and two others were shot dead Monday in about a half an hour of gunfire near Texas A&M University, police said.
Scott McCollum, assistant chief with the College Station police department, told reporters Monday afternoon that the three people killed were the constable, the man authorities say exchanged gunfire with law enforcement officers and a male civilian.
The dead include Brian Bachmann, a constable in Brazos County, according to McCollum. The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund noted he is the sixth law enforcement official killed so far this year in Texas.
According to his Facebook campaign page, Bachmann was a 41-year-old from College Station who had been a Brazos County sheriff's deputy since 1993. The county's website indicated that his four-year term as constable -- a position that involves, among other duties, serving court documents such as eviction notices and subpoenas to citizens -- was set to expire on December 31, 2014.
"He was a pillar in this community, and it's sad and tragic that we've lost him today," McCollum said.
The city of College Station on Monday night identified the suspect at the center of the standoff as 35-year-old Thomas Caffall.
On his Facebook page, Caffall indicates his hometown is nearby Bryan, Texas, but that he was living in College Station -- though he also described himself as "a cross between Forrest Gump and Jack Kerouac ... I'm on the road permanently."
On a Facebook page purported to be by Caffall, three of the seven profile pictures are of rifles, three feature dogs and one shows a man in an image much like one distributed Monday night by the city of College Station. The writer indicates he is divorced and has a mother, sister and brother.
The page also includes a quote saying, "We are all capable of redemption, if we are willing to change," plus another he attributes to George Orwell stating, "People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."
As to the third victim, described as a "civilian bystander," he was identified as 43-year-old Chris Northcliff of College Station. Police earlier had said he was 65 years old.

Police in Binh Thuan Province Sunday arrested a drug addict who allegedly walked into a stranger's house and slashed people with a knife before attacking people on the street outside, killing one person and injuring 19 others.
The knife used by a man who allegedly attacked 20 people in the central province of Binh Thuan on Sunday
Senior Lieutenant-Colonel Dinh Kim Lap, chief of the Tuy Phong District police, said the 27-year-old suspect, whom he referred to as just Tien, was an addict whose family was about to send him to Da Lat for rehabilitation.
After a wedding party Sunday Tien went to a cafe and was having a cup of coffee when he suddenly whipped out a knife and bolted into a nearby house where he injured four people belonging to a family, according to witnesses.
Then he came out and attacked passers-by, stabbing and slashing 16 others.
Half the victims were admitted to Bac Binh Thuan District General Hospital, where Nguyen Thi Lien, 48, succumbed to her injuries.
The rest were taken to Phan Ri Cua Hospital.
Doctors at Bac Binh Thuan Hospital said two of the victims, both 63, were transferred to the Binh Thuan Province General Hospital due to the seriousness of their injuries.
Many were injured in the head, they added.
The police are investigating.
A teacher mate graduated from Texas A and M.
When his folks came to visit him they were telling me about all the guns they have and all the guns on their housing estate that belong to their neighbours. It sounded like they could supply a small army!
Is it true Texas has more guns than any other state and that they provide the US military with the most personnel?
