Texas: Police in the US state of Texas have shot dead a man after he opened fire on people at a party, killing seven.

The shooting took place in Plano, a suburb north of Dallas on Sunday night, when the victims held a football watching party. Neighbors on the block told local media that they had heard 30 gunshots.

David Tilley, a spokesman for the Plano Police Department, said the shooter was killed by the first responding officer after an exchange of gunfire. The officer was not injured.

“After he heard the gunshots, he made entry and that’s when he observed several victims inside and then engaged the suspect,” he told a local paper.

Seven people were found dead in the Plano home. Two additional shooting victims were taken to a local hospital. Their condition was unknown.

“We’re trying to put all the puzzle pieces together,” Tilley said.
