A man killed his estranged wife and seven of her friends who were attending a party at her home.
Spencer Hight brought “multiple firearms of different types” to the house in a suburb in Dallas, Texas, the police said.
After he confronted his wife Meredith, the 32-year-old killed her, Plano police chief Gregory Rushin said. Meredith had filed for divorce in July 2017 after five years of marriage.
He had not lived in that home since March 2017. “We’ve never seen anything like this in our city before,” said Chief Rushin.
Two of the victims were reportedly alive when police arrived at the address but later died in hospital.
