Police confirm gunman dead after Texas shooting spree kills 4, injures 3

Police in Texas confirmed that a shooting spree in Corsicana, Texas killed four people (including a child), and injured three others before the gunman took his own life. Officers said the gunman was responsible for two homicides each, at two different scenes, along with injuring three people.

Corsicana Chief of Police Robert Johnson said in a statement that a 911 caller reported around midnight Friday that a suspect had allegedly killed his family. Officers found a man and woman dead from gunshot wounds at the home, and two additional gunshot victims were taken by air ambulance to a Dallas-area trauma center.

Early on Saturday morning, the Navarro County Sheriff’s Department responded to a separate location about 20 miles away, where they found the bodies of a man and child, both dead from gunshot wounds, and a woman with multiple gunshot wounds, who was transported to a Dallas-area trauma center. Police confirm the gunman was “critically injured from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head,” after a pursuit of his vehicle. He was transported to Navarro Regional Hospital where he died from his injuries.

The release of the names of the deceased victims was pending notification of next of kin.
