Two people were wounded when the unidentified gunman opened fire inside the party at a single-family home off Spring Creek Parkway in Plano, less than 20 minutes from Dallas, around 8 p.m., Fox 4 reported. The two wounded victims were transported to the hospital where one of them later died. Of the nine shooting victims, only one survived.
Witnesses said the group was watching the Dallas Cowboys season opener against the New York Giants.
“It sounded like an argument between a woman and a man and it got really loud…next thing you know all you heard was multiple rounds just going off,” Crystal Sugg, who works nearby, told Fox 4.
Sugg said she heard a loud argument for about 20 minutes – and then gunshots.
“I heard guns and a lot of screaming,” she said. “All I heard was, ‘Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom.’”
Police said at a news conference Monday they have not identified all of the victims, but said they were all adult men and women.
Police have not identified the suspect, but Debbie Lane told WFAA the gunman was her former son-in-law who killed her daughter, Meredith Lane. The mother said the couple recently got divorced after six years of marriage and the man used to own the home where the shooting happened.
“She was a cook, and a quite fine one, and she loved hosting friends and families,” Lane told WFAA. “This was her first opportunity to do it after the divorce and he didn’t take it well.”
