Police spokesman David Tilley said the shooter was killed by the first responding officer after an exchange of gunfire. The officer was not injured.

"We're trying to put all the puzzle pieces together," David Tilley said.

It is not yet clear what motivated the attack in the suburb of Plano, or if the gunman knew the victims.

he local Dallas News reported that those killed had been watching the Dallas Cowboys, an American Football team, when the violence unfolded.

The outlet quoted a neighbour, Stacey Glover, who said there had been a game-watching party at the property that started early in the afternoon, with people laughing and grilling food outside.
