Brazos County Constable Brian Bachman was killed in the line of duty in College Station, Texas, on August 14, 2012. The constable was serving eviction papers on a man who opened fire on him and others in the neighborhood. The gunman and one other person were also killed, and several people were wounded.

Brian had been an active member of the Law Enforcement Torch Run in Brazos County since 2000, always willing to help with anything Special Olympics Texas needed, whether it was working with athletes, or helping wait tables at the Texas Roadhouse to raise money. In fact, Brian ran the Special Olympics Torch with one of our athletes to help open the 2012 Equestrian Summer Games back in May…and he was an active participant in the latest “Tip A Cop” fundraiser just three weeks ago, which brought in $10,643 over two days.

Brian, 41, was serving his first term as constable and had worked in law enforcement for more than 15 years. He is survived by his wife and two children. As details about his funeral and any memorials are released, we will share them here.

SOTX President and CEO Margaret Larsen said the SOTX family has suffered a great loss. “We have lost a valued friend, and our prayers are with his family and his law enforcement colleagues. Brian Bachman will live forever in our hearts.”
