9th Person Has Died After Plano Shootings


Nine people are dead, including the gunman after a man opened fire on a football watching party at a Plano home Sunday night.

The unidentified suspect was shot and killed by an officer who arrived at the home on West Spring Creek Parkway just after 8 p.m.

The officer found bodies in the yard and heard shots coming from inside the house.

Monday afternoon Chief Rushin held a press conference to notify media that an eighth victim had died at the hospital. The toll now stands at nine, including the gunman.

"[He] made entry inside the house, confronted the suspect, ultimately shooting and killing him," Plano PD Officer David Tilley said.

The Texas Rangers are assisting with the investigation, especially since it involved an officer, who Plano PD Chief Gregory Rushin says went into the house by himself and stopped the shooter before waiting for backup.

Monday, flowers marked the spot of the most unthinkable event to happen in the most unlikeliest of places -- Plano.

"We've never had a shooting of this magnitude. We've never seen.
