Roller rink birthday party turns deadly: 6 Dead and 4 Wounded

Random act of violence? Domestic situation turned deadly? Questions are still unanswered, but witnesses from this tragic event are revealing some crucial information:

In a place where murder is a rarity, this is a true tragedy for the city of Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas.

Last night, it is believed that the father of an 11-year-old boy went on a shooting rampage at the Forum Roller World on the 1900-block of N. Great Southwest Parkway in Dallas, Fort Worth. This information was given by a father of two of the children who attended the party, according to Scott Gordon of NBC Dallas-Fort Worth.

The party that was supposed to last from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. ended abrupty at 7:15 p.m. when the shots reportedly rang out. As soon as police arrived, five people were already dead. Among the six that were later declared dead was the suspected gunman, who is thought to have been killed from self inflicted gun shot wounds.

So from what is assumed here, this sounds like a troubled man, who ended up trying to take his own life after going on a killing spree.

The father of a 12-year-old attendee of the birthday party, Sen Nguyen, claims that the suspected gunman was a "family man," and referred to him as a "friendly guy."

All the victims at this point are said to be adults. No children were injured, as reported by NBC Dallas, Fort Worth. Those shot and killed are believed to be the gunman's wife and other family members.
