Plano police and the Texas Rangers work the scene of a shooting at a home in the 1700 block of West Spring Creek Parkway in Plano, Texas on Monday, Sept. 11, 2017. He said there were "bodies down in the backyard" and that the shooter was still active inside the home, police spokesman David Tilley told ABC News.

Police have not given a motivation for the shooting and have said their investigation continues.

A woman who lives near a suburban Dallas home where eight people are dead, including the suspect, after a shooting says she'd earlier seen people laughing and grilling outside.

The motive behind the shooting had not been established yet.

Investigators confirmed the identities of the eight victims as: 27-year-old Meredith Emily Hight, the estranged wife of the suspect; 33-year-old Anthony Michael Cross; 24-year-old Olivia Nicole Deffner; 29-year-old James Richard Dunlop; 22-year-old Darryl William Hawkins; 31-year-old Rion Christopher Morgan; 28-year-old Myah Sade Bass and 25-year-old Caleb Seth Edwards.

All of the victims are adults. Rushin said the officer then made the courageous decision to enter the home without waiting for backup.

"We've never had a shooting of this magnitude". Rushin said the officer at that point settled on the overcome choice to enter the home without sitting tight for reinforcement.

The status of the surviving victim is unknown, Rushin said. Two others were wounded in the shoot-out and taken to a hospital, the authorities were quoted as saying by the New York Times. "I don't. I think 'why do people have to do this, ' you know?"

"The world is less without him", Griesemer said.

Reportedly, the shooting occurred during a party in the neighbourhood. Then around 8 pm, she heard gunshots and smelled gunpowder.

Calls reporting multiple gunshots came in to Plano Police dispatch around 8 p.m. Sunday. "It led me here to find out that he's not with us anymore", she told the news station.

The police officer has been placed on paid administrative leave as authorities investigate his opening fire on the gunman.

Officials in Plano have said it was the deadliest mass killing they have ever dealt with in the city. Rushin asked for patience in the investigation as the size of the crime scene and nature of the investigation is unlike anything the department has seen.
