Eight people shot to death at suburban Dallas home

PLANO, Tex. — Police in a Dallas suburb shot and killed a shooting suspect on Sunday night at a home where seven other people were found shot to death. Two more people were shot and injured.

KDFW reports that investigators in Plano don’t yet know what caused the disturbance, but one of the TV station’s reporters spoke to a neighbor who said he heard dozens of gunshots at a home where there was a party.

Plano police spokesman David Tilley says police initially responded to a report of shots fired. When the first officer arrived and went inside the home, the officer confronted the suspected shooter. Tilley says the officer opened fire, killing the suspect.

The victims and suspect have not yet been identified. All of those killed and injured are believed to be adults.

While it became an officer-involved shooting, no officers were injured. Plano is about 20 miles north of Dallas.
