    "....a midday shootout two blocks from Texas AM University in College Station."

    What else was it two blocks away from? How about five miles? Movie theater? Daycare? Sikh temple?

    Shameless sensationalizing. Some guy has a psychotic break over the stress of being evicted ( and who knows what else) and gets into a gunfight with the cops. It was not a campus shooting but, hey, it almost was!
