A gunman killed seven people at a house in Dallas before being shot dead by police, US authorities say.

The attacker was killed by the first responding officer at the scene after an exchange of gunfire, police spokesman David Tilley said.

The officer was uninjured.

Seven people were found dead in the property in Plano, a suburb north of Dallas, at around 8pm on Sunday.

Two additional victims of the attack were taken to hospital. Their condition is unknown.

Mr Tilley said that a shooting of this magnitude was unusual for Plano, especially in such a quiet neighbourhood

“We’re trying to put all the puzzle pieces together,” he said.

The victims, all believed to be adults, and the suspect have not been identified.

Police have yet to determine a motive for the attack.
