Gunman kills 5, self in Texas shooting
A gunman has killed five people during a birthday party at a roller skating rink in a Texas town before turning the gun on himself, police said.
The shooting in the town of Grand Prairie occurred late Saturday, after a fight broke out at a birthday party, said a police official who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The gunman killed five people and wounded four before shooting himself in the head. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital, according to police.
Police say the shooter was one of the organizers of the party, which quickly got out of control when an argument erupted between two family members.
No other details were given, but the official said the incident was under investigation.
