Eight people were found shot to death during a football watching party on Sunday night at a home in Plano, Texas, police revealed.

The unidentified gunman opened fire inside the party at a single-family home off Spring Creek Parkway around 8 p.m., DallasNews.com reported. A total of seven were killed in the melee while another two were hospitalized.

Plano police spokesman David Tilley said 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.

 

“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 to the newspaper.
The officer opened fire, Tilley said, killing the suspect. Two others were injured in the shooting. Their conditions were not released.

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

Police also have not determined a motive for the shooting. Additional details were not immediately available.

Tilley said that a shooting of this magnitude was unusual for Plano, especially in such a quiet neighborhood. He could not say whether police had been called to the home before Sunday.

A police investigation is ongoing.
