Texas: Gunman Kills Four In Two Shootings
A gunman has shot dead four people and wounded up to four more in two separate but related shootings in Texas.
The first attack came at about 10.30pm local time on Wednesday night at a house on Long Canyon Trail in southwest Dallas.
Two people died and two more were wounded, according to police sources.
The man was apparently looking for his ex-girlfriend, but she was not at home.
The suspect is then said to have driven seven miles to another house in the suburb of DeSoto where a further two people were killed and one or two others were injured.
According to WFAA-TV, the man threw an explosive device which detonated before he then went inside.
Some of the victims are thought to be children while several of the wounded are understood to be in a critical condition.
The authorities said a man, who initially claimed to be a victim, was arrested.
Dallas police told local media that the suspect only stopped shooting when he ran out of ammunition.
The TV station said the man has tattoos identifying him as a former member of the military.
Officials gave no details about what led to the shooting spree, but initial indications point to a domestic dispute.
