Surprised there's no mention here of the shootings at The Cottages. That is an incredibly poorly managed complex.

Sounds like the old Doux Chene apartments.

Stated it would be 150 people so only contracted one officer. Staff member who booked the event told the officer when he arrived that fact, but that past parties had grow up to 500 and rampant drugs, drinking and sex on site had been common at past events.

The neighboring complex The Junction sent a notice to tenants of the shooting immediately and to stay in place and then an all clear message when was over while The Cottages didn't say a word last night or yet today.

If this wasn't a continuation of the abysmal management of the property already you might discount it as a one time event, but the pattern is unmistakable. Completely incompetent and endangering the tenants. They almost never close the gates and encourage predatory tactics by tow trucks. A place to avoid.

In the day, blame was on "outside agitators"
and maybe a theme for shootings in that general area.
The last I recall was drug related near a pool .... was it Walden Pond?

There were definitely outside agitators, known to be from Brenham, Hearne and a town past Hempstead, but that was typical of last parties as well and not a surprise. The lack of respect for current tenants safety is where they failed. Again, management incompetence with that known information should be fireable offense.

It bothers me that the media refuses to report stuff like this because of the University. Omission is just as bad as fake news.

That's because TAMU has a large amount of control over all of the local media. Unless it's something major that is already public knowledge, if TAMU doesn't want a story out the media isn't going to report it.

KBTX ran a story on it and it's still on the website.

What more are y'all expecting?

The shooter or shooters were probably from out of town, and unassed the AO before CSPD arrived. Good guess that nobody who was still there when CSPD got there had any clue who they were.
