Police say one of the people hospitalized after a fatal shooting at a suburban Dallas home has died, bringing the total killed to nine, including the suspect, who was fatally shot by police.

Plano police Chief Gregory W. Rushin said Monday afternoon that one of the two people hospitalized had died. An officer responding to a report of shots fired at about 8 p.m. Sunday confronted the suspected shooter and opened fire, killing the suspect. Police then found the nine gunshot victims - seven were dead.

Police have not yet confirmed the identities of the suspect. Rushin did say that the suspect "was known by people in the residence."

Among the victims is Tony Cross, a Dallas resident who attended Connally High School in Austin back in 2003, according to reports from friends.
