Reports of 2 Dead, 1 Wounded in Shooting at Texas A&M Commerce
UPDATE: At a press conference Monday afternoon, TAMU Commerce police confirmed that two women were found dead from gunshot wounds inside a room at Pride Rock Residence Hall, and that an injured toddler also found in the room has been hospitalized.
Police were called to the scene around 10:17 AM, and the campus was placed on lockdown as students and staff were advised to shelter in place.
