HOUSTON (AP) -- Police say a gunman who was among three people killed in a shootout at a home near Texas A&M University earlier this week fired more than 65 rounds during the incident.

New details about the shooting in College Station were made public Friday as police released a timeline of Monday's deadly incident.

Police found four weapons in the home of the gunman, Thomas Alton Caffall III, after he was killed. They included a handgun Caffall removed from a constable who was killed. Also found in the home were a sniper rifle, an assault rifle and a bolt-action rifle.

Police say Caffall fatally shot Brazos County Constable Brian Bachmann and bystander Chris Northcliffe. He also wounded three officers and a female bystander.

Funerals for Bachmann and Northcliffe are set for Saturday.
