Texas shooting: eight killed, including gunman, at house party

The shooting happened last night less than 20 miles northeast of Dallas. The officer opened fire and killed the suspect.

Two other people were wounded in the incident, police said. All of the victims and the suspects are adults.

Plano police have not confirmed the identities of those who were killed, but they're believed to be in their 20s and 30s.

This is an ongoing investigation that is being conducted by Plano police detectives and the Texas Rangers and there is some information that they can not share just yet.

Debbie Lane told WFAA-TV that one of the victims was her daughter, Meredith, an Atlanta native and cook who "loved hosting friends and family".

After the suspect was killed the officer continued through the house.

The mass shooting rocked the Dallas suburb, Rushin said.

The mass shooting occurred during a cookout at the house, as people gathered there to watch the Dallas Cowboys season opening game on television, Rushin said. She says she then heard the shots around 8 p.m.

CBS DFW reports that police responded to a report of gunshots at a residence on West Spring Creek Parkway Sunday evening.

While Plano police are investigating the homicide, the Texas Rangers will investigate the police officer's shooting of the suspect.

During a news conference Monday afternoon, the Plano Police Department identified the gunman as Spencer Hight, 32, the estranged husband of the woman who hosted the party.

Responding to the situation, the police shot dead the suspect. After police arrived on scene, Glover heard officers yelling, "Hands up", before the spraying of more gunfire was heard. "We've never had this many victims before".
