UPDATE: College Station police said Thursday that a suspect who was shot by a police officer around 1 a.m. has died.

The 33-year-old white man was not identified, and officials did not take questions during a media briefing at the police department.

College Station Police Chief Billy Couch said the man was the subject of a long-term investigation and had been under surveillance.

"The investigators had reason to believe the suspect was transporting a large quantity of narcotics in his vehicle," Couch said.

During a traffic stop in the 1300 block of Earl Rudder Freeway, Couch said, the man "produced a handgun from the center console of his vehicle" and was shot.

A loaded firearm and a large quantity of illegal drugs was recovered from the vehicle, Couch said. 

The incident remains under investigation, Couch said, and no further information would be released.

UPDATE: All lanes of the northbound feeder road have been reopened. 

The northbound Texas 6 feeder road between Harvey Road and University Drive in College Station was closed Thursday morning as police investigated a shooting involving a law enforcement officer.

The College Station Police Department said in a tweet that the shooting happened in the 1300 block of the Earl Rudder Freeway. One person was shot around 1 a.m., the tweet said. There were no officers injured.

The road closure was expected to last through the morning commute.
