[Ed. – Since the story was first reported, another victim has died.]
Seven people were fatally shot at a Plano home Sunday evening, and their attacker was killed by a police officer.
Authorities were called to the home in the 1700 block of West Spring Creek Parkway, near Custer Road, about 8 p.m. after gunshots were reported.
A nearby officer responded and heard more gunfire as he arrived.
“He made entry, and that’s when he observed several victims inside and then engaged the suspect,” police spokesman David Tilley said.
The officer fatally shot the gunman, whose name has not been released. The officer was not hurt.
The victims, who also have not been publicly identified, were all adults. They had been watching the Dallas Cowboys when the violence began, neighbors said.
“I’ve been here all my life,” Tilley said. “I’ve never heard of anything like this.”
