Eight people are dead and one person has been injured after a series of shootings in south-central Missouri. Police made the discoveries on late Thursday in five different homes in or near the city of Tyrone. Authorities believe that they found the body of the shooter in a parked car near one of the crime scenes. The shooters motive is not known at this time, and police are continuing to investigate. “We are currently working six active scenes including the location in Shannon county were the suspect was found deceased,” Sergeant Jeff Kinder of the Missouri State Highway Patrol told reporters on Friday. On Thursday, officers from the Texas County Sheriff’s Department responded to an emergency call from a girl claiming she heard gunshots in a home. Upon inspection, officers found two people dead in the house. As they continued searching, they found six additional victims who were killed and one was injured spread across four other residences. The body of the suspect, who has only been identified as a 36-year-old man from Tyrone, was discovered in a car. He appeared to die of self-inflicted gunshot wound.
