Capps didn't offer much new information about the multiagency investigation but said that they would keep everyone updated as additional information becomes available throughout the day.

Officials said Bachmann, an 18-year law enforcement veteran, died at the hospital.
"Constable Bachmann was a pillar of this community, and our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends," College Station Assistant Police Chief Scott McCollum said of the constable, who leaves behind his wife, Donna, and their two children, Colby, 14, and 9-year-old Kaitlynn.
Brazos County Sheriff Chris Kirk said Bachmann was a good friend and a good man.
"I don't know anything about the investigation at this point except that Brian was doing his job and he was gunned down for doing it," the sheriff said. "Tragic tragic situation, and we're just devastated."
The incident unfolded starting at about 12:15 p.m. at 211 Fidelity St. -- not far from Kyle Field, home of the Texas Aggies football team. Several officers were called in and exchanged fire with with a man who was said to be barricaded inside a home, McCollum said.
McCollum said that it appeared that Bachmann was shot as he approached the gunman's house to serve an eviction notice. Calls from 911 came to the College Station Police Department and several officers were dispatched, he said.
