Police in the U.S. state of Texas say a gunman killed two people near Texas A&M University before officers shot and killed him.

Authorities say one police officer and a bystander were killed Monday after a gunman opened fire near the university in College Station. They say several other people were wounded in the shooting.

Officials said the gunman shot the police officer as he served him with a notice evicting him from his house.

The shooting comes after two recent high profile shootings in the United States. On July 20, a gunman in Colorado opened fire at a movie theater, killing 12 people. Two weeks later, a white supremacist shot six worshippers to death at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin before committing suicide.
