(HOUSTON HERALD) Nine persons are dead — including one of natural cases — in multiple shootings in Texas County in south-central Missouri, the Missouri State Highway confirmed.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol said the Texas County Sheriff's Department was called at about 10:15 p.m. Thursday by a frightened girl, who reported gunshots in a residence. She fled to a neighbor's home, and lawmen later found two bodies in the child's home.
Further investigation found another five fatalities and one additional wounded victim at three additional Tyrone residences, the patrol told the Herald. Lawmen later went to another residence, where they found an elderly woman who apparently had died of natural cases.
