Plano police have identified 32-year-old Spencer James Hight as the gunman who killed eight people at a Plano home Sunday night.

One of the victims died after being transported to a local hospital and another person was wounded but survived, police said.

Neighbor Stacey Glover told Dallas News that after police arrived on scene, Glover heard officers yelling, "Hands up", before the spraying of more gunfire was heard.

The officer entered the house, before backup could arrive, and shot the gunman, Plano Police Chief Gregory Rushin said on Monday.

The last major Florida cruise port to be closed for Hurricane Irma , PortMiami, reopened late on September 12. Wednesday the US Coast Guard captain of the port gave the green light for ship operations during daylight.

"After two years of trying to get him in treatment, trying to get him to stop, trying to help him... she said, enough is enough".

It is unclear whether the gunman returned fire. "We've never had a shooting of this magnitude; never had this many victims", he said.

The police officer has been placed on paid administrative leave as authorities investigate his opening fire on the gunman. These are the cars of the victims who did not make it home. Her mother, Debbie Lane, said her daughter had filed for divorce in July - in part due to her husband's alcoholism - but had just recently begun a new life of her own.

"We're grateful that we had her at all", Debbie Lane said.

Florida outages for Duke, which serves the northern and central parts of the state, so far have peaked at around 863,000. Rick Scott said 30,000 workers from out of state are assisting efforts to restore power to about 5.4 million customers.

She also shared that Meredith was the happiest she'd been in years. Lane and six others were killed Sunday September 10, 2017.

The shooting occurred during a cookout as people gathered to watch the Dallas Cowboys season opening National Football League game on television, police said.

Hight and his 27-year-old ex-wife, Meredith Emily Hight, would have celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary on Monday if they were still together, CBSDFW reported. "This was her first opportunity to do it after the divorce and he didn't take it well". "They were all close, dear friends". The man then went on a rampage, shooting nine people, seven fatally, inside the home and in the back yard, before being fatally shot by a Plano police officer.

All three officers are charged with forcibly assaulting, impeding, intimidating and interfering with the two victims. One of the hospitalized patients later died.

"It was officially out with the old and in with the new", Lane told WFAA-TV.
