COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) -- An attorney for the family of a gunman who was among three people killed in a shootout at a home near Texas A&M University says the gunman had been suffering from "mental issues."
Attorney W. Tyler Moore declined to elaborate on Tuesday what kind of mental problems 35-year-old Thomas Alton Caffall III had.
Moore said Caffall's family had lost contact with him since the spring. Moore says he had known Caffall since he was 4 years old and that "he wasn't the same kid that he used to be."
Police say Caffall opened fire Monday from inside his College Station home as he was being served an eviction notice. A law enforcement officer and a bystander were also killed in the shootout. Four people were injured.
