Police say they were called to the scene, in the area of West Spring Creek Parkway, shortly after 8pm when gunshots were heard.

According to CBS News, a responding officer shot dead the suspect.

"He actually heard gunshots and that's when he made entry into the house," a police spokesman said.

"That's when he observed several victims inside then engaged the suspect. And that's when he shot him."
