Authorities said all of the victims were adults. A motive for the shooting has not been released, as police are still investigating. 

The shooting reportedly happened during a Dallas Cowboys watch party. 

Witness Crystal Sugg describes what she witnessed outside of the home before the shooting started to a reporter with Fox 4.

Suggs said she saw a man arguing with a woman outside of the home and said you couldn’t really hear what the disagreement was about. 

‘And as they were arguing, the woman was trying to go back in,’ Sugg said. 

‘As she was going back in the house, you see the man pull out his gun and started releasing.

‘So as he released, I ran back in because I didn’t want to get hit by nothing.’
