Incident at Local Islamic Community Center


July 7, 2016

We are deeply concerned by police reports that the Islamic Community Center located north of the Texas A&M campus was damaged by gunfire earlier today and are grateful that no one was injured.

We are saddened that such a deplorable incident would occur anywhere — and especially in our community. Our primary concern is always the safety and well-being of everyone in our university community — and particularly those for whom this place of worship has special meaning. Therefore, we will be reaching out to provide support to those impacted, as is in keeping with the values for which we as Aggies stand.

While the incident did not occur on the Texas A&M campus, nor do we have any information indicating that anyone associated with Texas A&M was involved, our police department will be closely monitoring the situation.
