mass shooting

A gunman killed 7 people inside a Plano home before he was shot and killed by a police officer. More than 3 dozen police units responded to the scene of the shooting in the 1700 block of West Spring Creek Parkway, near Custer Road, at 8:04 p.m. Sunday.

Neighbors say they heard 30-40 gunshots ring out at a Dallas Cowboy watch party. An officer who was in the area responded to the call and heard the gunshots as he arrived.

"After he heard the gunshots, he made entry and that's when he observed several victims inside and then engaged the suspect," police spokesman David Tilley said. The unidentified officer shot the suspect, killing him.

The officer was placed on administrative leave which is protocol in an officer-involved shooting.

The deceased are all adults. Two other people at the home were hospitalized. Their conditions are not known.

Neighbor Crystal Suggs told Fox4 News reporter Allison Harris she heard a man and a woman arguing outside the house. Suggs said the woman turned to go back inside the house when the gunman produced an automatic weapon and started shooting.

"So as he released, I ran back in because I didn't want to get hit by nothing," Suggs said.

The mass shooting occurred about 20 miles northeast of Dallas.

    This is just sad. With all the tragedies we are dealing with with these hurricanes. This just adds another layer of sadness & grief. This sounds like a domestic incident that came to a head at the football party. I pray for the loved ones of those who were killed.

  • Kanyade

    Lord have mercy.

  • Yardgirl

    RIP to the victims. What is this world coming to?? Sad.

  • tintin

    sounds like a bitter ex-boyfriend/husband.

    This is sad on so many levels. The gun laws in America make it so simple to have a gun, left alone kill. Something needs to be done.

    R.I.P to the victims who most likely had nothing at all to do with this domestic situation.

    Tragic...I agree it reads like a domestic violence incident. When will people wake up and realize that abuse isn't love?? Leave the FIRST time a MF hits you or smacks you. That's a warning shot and it only gets worse not better. It's never worth whatever excuse you give yourself to stay in a toxic situation. All of these people are dead more than likely because one person couldn't say no to another. Sad

    Damn! What ever happened to agreeing to disagree and walking away?!?

  • Chicagowise

    Why are sports fans so violent?

  • shun king

    the woman tried to show out on the man in front of her family members thinking they would intervene if he got too crazy she didnt expect him to start shooting

  • Ryan

    He didn't have to shoot everybody up though.

  • Ryan

    Something tells me this had nothing to do with sports. Crazy.

  • Allisha Jackson

    No excuse at all, he already planned on killing them.

  • shun king

    black women do these thing often and when blood is on the wall everybody dumbfounded

  • Enoughsaid2020

    There is more to this story. R.I.P. Hope the other victims recover, sending prayers. SMH!

  • Ryan

    Red herring. Baseless stereotypes. Any woman can bring drama, whether they're black, white, hispanic, etc. Everybody knows this.

    The woman mentioned didn't shoot and kill seven people. I see what you're trying to do here and it won't work. You get a D- for effort though.

    R.I.P. to the people who died.

  • Chicagowise

    "Police did not identify the victims, but Debbie Lane told WFAA the gunman was her former son-in-law who killed her daughter, Meredith Lane. The mother said the couple recently got divorced after six years of marriage and the man used to own the home where the shooting happened."

    It sounds like he wanted his house back.

  • shun king

    do you live in and inner city are grown up in one things like this happen all the time...

  • Ryan

    Yes. That's how I know you're full of shit. Now see, you messed around and gone from a D- to a F.
