Wow is pretty much all I can say
A gunman with an assault rifle was shot and killed this morning after opening fire at police headquarters in McKinney.
McKinney Police Department

A McKinney official said the shooter was killed near the public safety building in the 2200 block of Taylor-Burk Drive. It was unclear whether the suspect was shot by police or died from a self-inflicted wound.


There were no reports of anyone else injured in the shooting, which started about 9 a.m.

Preliminary reports indicated that the gunman set a pickup on fire outside the police station to draw people out before opening fire with a semiautomatic rifle.

A witness told WBAP radio (820 AM) that the shooter was also wearing a bulletproof vest and was shooting at vehicles near the police station.

The McKinney campus of Collin College, across the street from the station, was locked down after the shooting. Students and staff were warned by e-mail not to come to the school.
