The as yet unnamed shooter fled the scene before officers arrived. Clemons said the police are aware of the person’s identity, and that the suspect is still at large.

In a shock to college football fans, unranked Texas A&M stunned top-ranked Alabama 41-38 on a last-play field goal, ending the Crimson Tide’s winning streak at 19 games.
