#Trippy.Tube 2 die as gunman shoots 8 people at party near Greenville, authorities say #shooting #abcnews At least 2 dead, 14 injured in mass shooting at Texas university | ABC News The parking lot outside the Party Venue near Greenville was littered Sunday with signs of the panic of the night before. Halloween masks people had cast away lay near blue medical gloves that dotted the ground. Nearby, a pool of blood had soaked into the gravel. Sgt. Jeff Haines of the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office said even a brief glimpse inside the venue was worse. “Horrific,” he said, describing what he’d seen while authorities searched where a gunman shot eight people at a crowded party as nearby Texas A&M University-Commerce celebrated homecoming weekend. Two of the victims died, including 23-year-old Kevin Berry Jr. of Dallas. Four more were in critical condition late Sunday. He described the eerie scene of the debris left behind — a lost hat, a shoe lying outside the door — as the frightened crowd of about 750 fled. Some were so frantic they cut themselves on broken glass scrambling to escape through windows. Graphic video “It’s horrific to think about what was going through the minds of the people there,” Haines said. The chaos that began about midnight Saturday was reflected in the uncertainty of the next day as officials’ accounting of the number of people who’d been shot wavered. Initial accounts had suggested the gunman was armed with a semiautomatic rifle, but Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks confirmed the weapon was a handgun. And authorities said they still hadn’t identified a suspect, despite the hundreds of potential witnesses around him when he began firing at the venue along U.S. Highway 380. Saturday night’s party, attended mostly by people in their teens and early 20s, had been promoted as a homecoming event but wasn’t university-sanctioned. Texas A&M-Commerce confirmed that four of its students had been treated and released from hospitals. The first person the gunman shot may have been his intended target and the rest of the victims may have been fired upon randomly, the sheriff said. “The amount of people that were there, the overcrowdedness of it — it gave the opportunity for this shooter to be able to accomplish whatever he wanted to accomplish,” Meeks said. “When you have this many people in one place, it’s an easy target for somebody.” An ATF canine unit works around the scene on Sunday, October 27, 2019 at The Party Venue near Greenville, Texas.

A “Twerk or Treat” costume party had been promoted for Saturday night at the venue, which is described as an 8,000-square-foot facility with a capacity of 500 — well below the estimated attendance at the event. Hunt County deputies who were investigating complaints about illegal parking at the venue arrived about 20 minutes before the gunman opened fire. They were questioning a person outside the front of the venue who they believed was intoxicated when they heard gunshots coming from the back of the building. At first, they could not tell whether the shots were fired inside or outside but found the two men who had been killed when they entered the building, authorities said. An off-duty Farmersville ISD police officer also had been at the venue working security at the party. The sheriff said the party became “complete chaos” as people tried to flee the gunman, with some breaking through windows and others trying to squeeze through the venue’s front door four abreast. Six people suffered cuts and bruises while they were trying to The gunman fled during the commotion, and witnesses had not given authorities a detailed description of him or any suspect vehicle. “It appalls me that, as many folks that were there, [they] have not been able to give us a better description of the shooter,” Meeks said. The sheriff pleaded with partygoers to provide any information they could about the gunman. “We need to get him off the street as soon as possible, and we have very, very little to go on right now,“ he said. According to Meeks, a sheriff’s sergeant quickly determined that one person who had been shot had life-threatening injuries and rushed that victim to a hospital in his patrol vehicle. Another deputy at the scene performed triage. “I believe their actions may have saved lives,” he said. Meeks said that in his 44 years of law enforcement experie By TrippyTube via https://youtu.be/KhundCmzdtY
