    A friend of mine has a daughter that goes to A&M. She said her daughter told her that word on A&M's campus is there could be two gunman..one was seen near the Rudder Tower and another was seen on "west campus". Not sure what that means. No one is sure yet if there's two separate gunman, if the second report is a hoax, or if it's the same gunman in both reports.
