A gunman opened fire on hundreds of people at an off-campus homecoming party near Greenville, Texas, killing two and sending 14 more to area hospitals, police said Sunday.
According to CNN, a manhunt is underway for the shooter who opened fire at around 11:15 pm last night during a party that may have involved a Texas A&M University-Commerce fraternity.
Chief Deputy Buddy Oxford of the Hunts County Sheriff’s Office said the party did not appear to be sanctioned by the school. Investigators have yet to establish a motive but are looking for a single shooter, the chief deputy said.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, families, and friends of those affected by this morning’s shooting in Greenville,” Texas A&M University-Commerce said in a statement.
The FBI and Texas Rangers are now assisting in the investigation and the university and its police department are working with the sheriff’s office to determine whether any of the victims are students, the statement says.
