Anyone know anything new?

From KBTX at the moment:

"The College Station Police Department is presently investigating a homicide that occurred in the 100 block of College Main. Several streets have been closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic. College Main, Lodge and Tauber streets are closed between University Drive and Church Ave. Pedestrians are being directed to use the protected cross walk at Nagle St. in order to cross University Dr. onto the TAMU campus. We will have more on this story as it develops."

That is so scary. Do we know if it was a student at A&M? Are there any other details?

I was wondering what was going on. I just drove by there and there was police tape everywhere and a camera guy and policemen standing around.

I doubt it, people get assaulted ALL THE TIME at Northgate, it happens unfortunately. But you only hear about it if it's an international student that got assaulted, and that's a small portion of it all.

From CSPD: At this time, only College Main from University Dr. to Church Ave., and Lodge St. from University Dr. to Church Ave. remain closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic

If no one ever hears about it, how do you personally come across that information. Are you a police officer?

My cousin used to be CSPD.

He says the areas behind NG is a well known "hot spot" for criminal scum who travel between Houston and Dallas because of the high proportion of people who have English as a second language that live there. Most of them don't report crimes.

I don't know in this case, just sayin'.

No, but if you have spent any time out at Northgate you'll see fights and stuff out there all the time. And it's usually drunk white guys fighting each other.

Actually, I was talking to a CSPD friend of mine yesterday about the Northgate area, and he said that compared to some other parts of town, the Northgate area is relatively quiet, and this is BECAUSE it's mostly international students. I could be wrong, since I didn't ask directly, but I got the impression that most of the stuff that happens on Northgate occurs in the bar areas, and not so much in the residential areas. (Which is a relief since I live in the Northgate residential area). From personal experience, I can say that most people who LIVE in the area are pretty low key and tend to keep to themselves. The people who tend to cause problems typically aren't the residents.

Case in point: the area they are investigating is right in front of the Groove/Hookah bar, not where the international students/I live.

I saw it about 7am this morning. I didn't know there were that many Cops cars in the whole of Brazos County.

Right, so RUMOR from some girls that were leaving Logan's last night/this morning and saw police then...stabbing at V-Bar.

Northgate is a hotbed for petty crime like bike theft and auto breakins.

I lived in the Newport Condominimus across from St. Mary's for 4 years. In that time my car was broken into, my roomates car was broken into and both of my roomates had bikes stolen, one in broad daylight on a Sunday and the other by an international student who lived across the way.

We got that bike back because he was foolish to lock it up outside his front door after he put a new front tire on it. So we fired up the dremel and cut his lock off, took off the new tire he had put on it and brought it in. The next day, the damaged front tire which was originally on the bike which we could not find magically appeared on our doorstep.

I never saw any violence on Northgate in the bars or near where I lived however.

This also is rumor... a friend of mine said that a few guys were kicked out of V-bar and waited until close and stabbed a bartender or two. One was ok but the other died either in the ambulance or at the hospital... I don't know how true this is but thought I'd pass it along

Seems like a long time lapse from the incident to the investigation, but what do I know?

Especially if they know that much about it already.

So now the RUMOR is that twin brothers who turned 22 last night were both stabbed at or around V bar and that one of the twins plays basketball at Rice. The some of the police markers/pins etc were outside my son's classroom window which faces the back of Vbar.

Fight at College Station Bar Ends in Murder

April 5, 2007 11:06 AM CDT

by Emily Allen

COLLEGE STATION - A fight at a Northgate bar turned deadly early Thursday morning after one man pulled out a knife and stabbed two men.

College Station Police tell ABC 40 it happened around two Thursday morning at the V-Bar on College Main. They say twin brothers from Spring got into a fight with at least one other man. The fight carried outside, where one witness said more men joined in. The suspect allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed both of the brothers.

Both men were taken to the hospital, where one was pronounced dead. Police say there are unconfirmed reports that the man who died is a Rice University basketball player.

Police believe there may be at least two suspects involved who took off. After hearing reports from witnesses, they believe they may have tracked down at least one suspect.

ABC 40 will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.

FROM CSPD...

On 4/4/07, at approximately 01:45 A.M., Officers from the College Station Police Department responded to the 100 block of College Main in reference to a possible gunshot victim. Upon arrival, officers located two stabbing victims in the 100 block of Lodge St. The victims, who are twin brothers, were transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital by College Station Fire Dept. personnel. One of the victims was later pronounced dead. The other victim is undergoing treatment for multiple stab wounds. The deceased person has been identified as:

Jonathan Bailey
W/M
22 years of age

The surviving victim has been identified as 22 year old, Janson Bailey. The preliminary investigation reveals that the victims had been involved in an altercation with some other subjects inside the V-Bar located at 110 College Main. All of the persons were asked to leave the bar, however a fight between the subjects soon broke out in front of the bar. The fight between the victims and several other subjects continued east-bound down Patricia Street, eventually ending up in the 100 block of Lodge St. where both victims were stabbed. The suspects then fled on foot east-bound towards Nagle Street.

College Station Police detectives responded to the scene and continued the investigation. Information collected at the scene led detectives to the location of the possible suspects. At approximately 10:45 A.M. two suspects were located and are presently speaking with detectives. Police are looking for no other suspects at this time.
The case remains under investigation and no charges have been filed at this time.

Growing up here I will tell you that never in our expanded imaginations did we think anything like this could ever happen in this town.

The first shocking incident to come along was the Tim Merka "good samaritan" incident in the late 70's that just made everyone's jaw drop incredulously. Later on there would be sporadic homicides...sometimes one two per year, sometimes we'd go 4-5 years without anything happening. I remember another shocking one was the Blue incident where a girlfriend was set on fire at Varsity Apartments, that also fell into the "can't happen here" category. I also remember the Texas Coin Exchange robbery was similar to a social earthquake for B/CS.

Compared to other cities these incidents have been relatively few. But times appear to be changing.

The report seems to indicate a gang of attackers chased the victims down, probably cornered them, and may have held them helpless as the designated killer delivered his fatal stabs. I hope the bar had adequate video footage so that all participants and passive onlookers can be readily identified, chased down by the police, cornered and hog-tied helpless until charged as accessories to murder and punished.

Northgate bars are a magnet for skunks and drunks. Wide-open-anything-goes bars have no place inside the limits of a civilized city and particularly within a densely populated housing area. Shut 'em down, move 'em out, bulldoze that festering sore.
