A shooting which occurred in the early hours of Sunday October 27, after hundreds of students gathered at The Party Venue in Greenville which is near Dallas, to celebrate the start of a new term at Texas A&M Commerce College, reportedly left two people dead.
Injured victims of the shooting were spotted in the videos shared online with at least one victim of the shooting receiving a CPR as many people screamed in the background.
Fears that more than a dozen people were shot appeared to be confirmed by officials in Hunt County, who told local media three air ambulances took some victims to a trauma hospital.
“We’ve got a bunch of walking wounded,” a Hunt County deputy said on the scanner, according to a WFAA reporter.
CBS 11 News reporter J.D Miles also tweeted:
‘Reports from Greenville of a mass shooting at a party venue with several casualties. ‘
Multiple first responders on the scene. I’m told it was a homecoming party and there are fatalities.’
It is unclear how many were in the building when the gunman who is now at large opened fire with a rifle, it was however gathered that the first official response to the incident came about 3:15a.m from Texas A&M Commerce police.
