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.

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.
