COLLEGE STATION -- What started as an alleged robbery in College Station ends in a deadly shooting.

Now police are investigating how it happened and our own Lauren Holman was at the crime scene today for the latest.

Doug Maunder walks past 1419 Holik Drive every day on his way to the bus stop but Tuesday morning it was a much different scene.

"I was pretty shocked," said Maunder. "My roommates' girlfriend told us she saw the SWAT team out here this morning and I just had no idea what was going on."

Police say the investigation all started when 28-year-old Christopher Troy Reeves was dropped off at the College Station Med Monday night with a gunshot wound by his friend, Robert Farr.

"We made contact with Mr. Farr and he told investigators that he and Reeves had come to an address on Holik with the intent to deprive those residence of their property," said Officer Rhonda Seaton with the College Station Police Department.

Farr told police he stayed in the vehicle while Reeves went inside and when Reeves came back out, he had a serious gunshot wound, that he later died from.

But police say they still aren't sure exactly what happened.

"All we have at this point is interview information," said Officer Seaton. "It is possible this residence isn't even involved so that's what we're doing here. We have a search warrant and we're just trying to find physical evidence to connect it with the offense."

Robert Farr has been charged with criminal attempt robbery.

Reeves had a long criminal history including: two arrests for possession of marijuana and one arrest for burglary of a vehicle.

Two people inside the home where the shooting is believed to have taken place are being questioned by police.
