A mass shooting has left at least two dead and more than a dozen injured at a homecoming party in Greenville, just northeast of Dallas, local officials and witnesses say. Only few details are currently available.
The incident happened just after midnight on Sunday when officers were called for an active shooter at The Party Venue on Highway 380 in Greenville, a city in Hunt County. Details about what happened were not immediately known.
According to initial reports, there are up to 20 gunshot victims, including multiple fatalities and serious injuries. Jason Whitely, a reporter for local ABC affiliate WFAA, said at least two people were killed and more than 12 others were injured.
A large number of emergency services, including air ambulances, were called to the scene of the shooting. There was no immediate comment from local authorities about the number of victims, and the status of the suspect(s) is unknown.
A homecoming party from Texas A&M University Commerce was reportedly taking place at the time of the shooting. WFAA-TV said the shooting involved a .227 caliber rifle. A motive is unknown.
Greenville is about 45 miles (72 kilometers) northeast of Dallas.
They tend to be acts of anger/passion. Not the psycho chickens of school shootings.
??? Either a very old Rifle from the early 1900s OR another ignorant reporter that means .223 eg: AR-15, Im going with ignorant reporter.
Prayers for the Murdered and Injured including the Families.
Is this another brought to Us by the deep scum using MK-Ultra again ?
Pretty impressive shooting from a 100-year-old lever action rifle.
Shooting 20 people with a rifle that only holds 7 rounds in the magazine.
The only rifle ever chambered in 0.227 I can find is the Savage Hi-Power introduced 1912.
Reporters entirely ignorant in firearms shouldnt be writing about shootings.
Yup, I found the same information. Just another ignorant reporter was My call as well.
But it was a SCARY BLACK tube with handgrips and a huge telescope so it can be used to shoot down the Moon.
“You gonna use a .227?”
“.227, .228. Whatever it takes.”
I'm sure it was a Webley-Vickers 50.80.
Party described by Heavy.com as a “Twerk or Treat”.
A mass shooting conveniently after news that the ISIS leader is dead? Hmmm.............
Maybe things will be more clear by Sunday afternoon. It wouldn’t surprise me if this was a dealer in the midst of the ‘party’ who was unhappy with a second dealer there, and he was correcting the competition.
.22 Savage Hi-Power
“It is based upon the .25-35 Winchester cartridge necked down to accept a .227in/.228in diameter bullet...In Europe, the .22 Savage Hi-Power is called the ‘5.6×52mmR’, and it’s still made by RWS, Norma, Sellier & Bellot, and Wolf Ammunition, and exported to the U.S. market.”
Re: Black shooter
The party was for Texas A&M Commerce.
The city of Commerce is 24% Black.
He’s dead again?
Love that movie...
Hold it dammit will you stand still so I can shoot you
Per Wiki... Students: 47% White, 20% Black
Yeah, after midnight I was at home, in bed, asleep.
20% black? For Texas A&M, or for the “branch” at Commerce?
What’s the big deal? This is no worse then an afternoon in Chicago.
