A man shot and killed eight people at a Dallas-area home where people had gathered to watch a Dallas Cowboys football game on TV, authorities say.

Onlookers watch police work the scene of a shooting at a home in Plano, north of Dallas, Texas, Sunday night, September 10, 2017. But the investigation is still ongoing, with detectives combing through the crime scene and interviewing witnesses, Rushin said.

"We've never had a shooting of this magnitude; never had this many victims", Plano Police Cheif Gregory W. Rushin said. "This officer went directly into fire, where fire was taking place, and stopped the shooter's ability to continue to kill people". An officer nearby approached the residence just two minutes later, where he heard gunfire and found shooting victims down in the backyard, Rushin said.

In all, nine people were shot by Hight, Rushin said. She added Meredith owned the home where the violent incident unfolded and that she'd recently divorced her husband of six years.

"His brother wrote rest in peace Tony Cross and I thought, 'What happened?' I got a hold of his brother on Facebook and he told me what happened and I was like, 'Oh my God, no.' I ran and told Mike". "It's like one big family here".

Carmen Carola told CBS News that Cross was her boyfriend's best friend, and that the last time she saw him they were out dancing for her birthday.

The investigation into the deaths of the eight victims is being handled by the Plano Police Department. The officer who fatally shot the suspected gunman is on administrative leave with pay and the shooting is being investigated by the Texas Rangers, which is normal in officer-involved shootings.
