    TX - Shots fired outside McKinney police dept and Collins College campus 8/17/10

    Officials say shots have been fired either outside the McKinney Police Department, on campus at Collin County Community College, or at both locations.

    One person described as being a shooter is confirmed dead.

    However, police say the scene is still an active one.

    The college is on lockdown as officers and police dogs search the campus, attempting to secure the scene.

    A burned truck located outside the police station could be related to the situation.

    No further information is available.

    This article is saying there were two separate shootings at the same time (one at the McKinney PD and one at the community college..and one shooter may still be on the loose).

    Sounds like an interesting day there in Collin County. I hope no one was injured.

    THis article has been updated. There was only one shooting incident. The police department was fired on from the campus of the college. There is a wooded area around the college and this is where the shooter was hiding. The shooter is dead.

    Gunman dies after firing at suburban Dallas police

    Associated Press/AP Online

    By SCHUYLER DIXON
    McKINNEY, Texas - A man drove a pickup truck loaded with ammunition into a suburban Dallas police station's parking lot Tuesday, set the truck on fire and exchanged gunfire with police, officials said. The gunman was the only casualty and died at the scene.

    McKinney Deputy Police Chief Scott Brewer said the man was shouting as the truck became engulfed in flames and the ammunition inside began exploding. The still-unidentified gunman then began shooting toward the police station and there was a "brief exchange of gunfire," Brewer said.
