Texas A&M reports that police took a gunman into custody 15 minutes after issuing a "Code Maroon" alert at 12:29 this afternoon.

An alert distributed electronically to students, faculty and staff warned people to stay away from the intersection of Welborn Road and George Bush Drive and part of Fidelity Drive in College Station, Texas, according to CNN. The message also told residents in the area, which is near the school's football stadium, to stay indoors.

The Atlantic Wire writes that the shooter appeared to be firing a weapon from a home in the area. Scott McCollum, College Station's assistant chief of police, said the shooter's address is 211 Fidelity St., College Station, Texas.

Texas A&M spokesperson Sherylon Carroll said campus was relatively quiet as classes do not begin until Aug. 27. Texas A&M is the sixth largest university in the country and is home to more than 50,000 students.
