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.
