A shooting in College Station has left a Brazos County Constable dead, the alleged shooter dead, and another civilian dead.
This happened shortly after noon Monday on Fidelity Street, southeast of George Bush Drive and east of Wellborn Road.
The constable who was killed was serving an eviction notice at a home on Fidelity Street when he was met with gunfire.
Two other officers and a civilian were injured.
News 3's Clay Falls was one of the first reporters on scene and was on the street before having to evacuate.
At 6 P.M. Monday it was still a very active crime scene with detectives, DPS Troopers and investigators in a row walking through yards searching for evidence.
For the News 3 crew first on scene the most sobering part of this story was hearing all of those gunshots as it was happening and now knowing the tragedy that followed.
It was a shocking scene speaking with folks as gunfire erupted just down the street.

News 3 was just blocks away when we heard reports of an officer down.
Looking for the house on Fidelity Street suddenly we heard a gunshot and realized we were just a few houses away when police and firefighters warned to get further away.
"There' s a guy inside the house shooting a shotgun at police officers that's all about all I know," said Loren Naylor, who was anxiously speaking with his mother who was trapped in her car two houses down with a firefight in progress.
"They are trying to apprehend the perpetrator inside the house. They are shooting," he relayed while speaking with her on his cellphone.
News 3 heard at least half a dozen rounds while speaking with Ralph Trujillo.
"They are shooting at him. It's unbelievable here having it in College Station," said Trujillo, who was unable to return to his home at the time.
Cones were still keeping the public back Monday afternoon and we could see SWAT teams still monitoring the perimeter several hours after the shooting happened. Worried residents here were still wondering who the shooter was.
"They stormed the house. I think they've got him," said Loren Naylor.
Thomas McNutt lives a few houses down and heard first hand what happened from a friend.
“They had a shootout across the street. Finally they shot the shooter. Life is precious. Pretty crazy," said McNutt.
The investigation still continues as we work to get a better picture of who this shooter and these victims are.
