    I just got the alerts. I haven't been able to find much info about it yet. I was born in Missouri and have a very large extended family there. I haven't seen much on the news sites yet other than the most basic info.

    :(

    Tyrone is i) unincorporated and thus ii) tiny, and iii) is named after County Tyrone in Northern Ireland.

    Authorities: Nine bodies found in shooting investigation - houstonherald.com | Houston Herald: News
    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 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.

    (snip)

    A Missouri State Highway Patrol officer confirmed the death of the alleged shooter, a 36-year-old man. The lawmen said he was found in a parked vehicle in Shannon County. Investigators at about 7:30 a.m. were leaving one of the crime scenes. Two are within a short distance of each other near Highways H and DD.

    AFAIK they have not yet indicated any relationship between any of the victims and/or the suspect. Of course that could change when they release information.

    One article did state that MO State Troopers told residents on Highway H not to open the door to strangers, so I'm wondering if this could be a random act based on that?

    I also read that three of the crime scenes are in a small area though there are others elsewhere.

    Police apparently do not know whether or not there are other victims. How scary and sad. :(

    Many of the tiny unincorporated areas here in East Tennessee like Tyrone have only 3 ways to sustain themselves: 1. Own(ed) their own business 2. Drugs 3. Government benefits. It makes a sad place for kids.

    If she died from a heart attack due to the trauma of the situation LE will eventually list her as a victim of the shooter also.

    If he lives he will be tried for her death also. Anytime someone dies for whatever reason while the criminal is committing another felony they are tried for their deaths also.

    ETA: Oops never mind I see he took the cowardly way out.
