PLANO, Texas (AP) — Authorities in North Texas say at least eight people are dead, including the suspect, after a shooting at a home in Plano where people gathered to watch the Dallas Cowboys game.

The shooting occurred Sunday night in the city less than 20 miles northeast of Dallas.

Two others were injured in the shooting. Their conditions have not been released.
