A man reportedly opened fire at a Dallas Cowboys watch party in Texas on Sunday and killed seven people. Officers who arrived on the scene later shot and killed the gunman.

Fox 4 News in Plano spoke with a witness who said she heard a man and a woman arguing loudly for about 10 minutes outside the home before the shooting began.

“They argued and you could hear it getting really, really loud,” the witness said. “You could tell there was something about to happen. Once people started coming outside, that’s when he let off the rounds. … I heard guns and a lot of screaming.”

The gunman killed seven people — all adults — and police have not said how many people were inside the house at the time of the shooting or how they were all connected. Four men who were wearing Cowboys jerseys confirmed to Fox 4’s Allison Harris that the party was a gathering for the Cowboys’ game against the New York Giants. They had left to go watch the game at a bar shortly before the shooting took place.

Police have not yet released the names of any of the victims.
