Sept 11 (Reuters) - A total of nine people died in a
shooting in Plano, Texas, including the shooter who was killed
by a police officer, the city's police chief said on Monday.
The shooter and seven victims died in and around a home on
Sunday and two other victims were taken to a hospital, Plano
Police Chief Gregory Rushin said at a news conference. One of
the victims taken to a hospital later died, Rushin said.
Police had previously said eight people were killed in the
incident, including the shooter, which took place in the suburb
north of Dallas.
"We've never seen anything like this in this city before,"
Authorities did not release the identities of the victims or
the shooter. All the people who died in the shooting were
adults, Rushin said.
The victims were gathered at the home for a cookout, Rushin
said. The shooter had some connection to the property and was
not a stranger, he said.
