Rion Morgan

Tara Morgan wrote on Facebook that her brother was in Spencer and Meredith Hight’s wedding and had visited with Spencer, whom he considered a friend, the day before the tragedy.

According to Rion Morgan’s LinkedIn page, he worked as a manager for the University of Texas at Dallas help desk center.

“Rion Morgan’s passing is a tremendous loss to the University community,” university spokesman John Walls said in a prepared statement. “Rion has been a member of the UTD family since 2006; first as a student and then after he graduated, as a full-time employee in the Office of Information Technology. He was an exceptional employee and a warm, kind, generous colleague and friend. He will be dearly missed.”

7 shot dead at Texas football watch party; gunman killed, police say …

A gunman allegedly barged into his ex-wife’s home and slaughtered seven people at a Texas football watch party Sunday night – before police responded and killed the shooter.

Two other people were wounded when the unidentified gunman opened fire inside the party at a single-family home off Spring Creek Parkway in Plano, less than 20 minutes from Dallas, around 8 p.m., FOX4 reported. Witnesses said the group was watching the Dallas Cowboys season opener against the New York Giants.

“It sounded like an argument between a woman and a man and it got really loud…next thing you know all you heard was multiple rounds just going off,” Crystal Sugg, who works nearby, told FOX4.

Sugg said she heard a loud argument for about 20 minutes – and then gunshots.

“I heard guns and a lot of screaming,” she said. “All I heard was, ‘Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom.’”

Police did not

Mass Shooting At Gender Reveal Party Tied To Drug Rings, Police Say

In July, two men shot up a gender reveal party near Cincinnati, killing a young mother and injuring eight others.

The story is as tragic as it is shocking. And as we learn more about the events surrounding the attack, it seems that all signs point to drug activity. That’s according to police in Colerain Township, Ohio, where the shooting took place on July 8. 


According to police spokesperson James Love, multiple connections were found linking people at the party and “three drug rings”—leading authorities to believe that the shooting was “in no way” a random act of violence.

Police Now Say Mass Shooting At Gender Reveal Party Was ‘In No Way’ Random

A mass shooting at a gender reveal party may not have been random.

According to several news outlets, authorities in Ohio believe that the shooting—in which one woman was killed and eight people injured—may have been drug-related.

As previously reported, three children and six adults were shot at what was purported to be a gender reveal party. Twenty-two-year-old Autumn Garrett of Indiana died at the scene. Witnesses claimed that two men in hoods came into the home, started shooting and then quickly fled.

Police in Colerain Township said the shooting was “in no way random,” per Fox 19. They now believe that the attendees at the event on July 8 had connections to three different drug rings.

“From the start of this investigation, our detectives have met significant resistance from several of the victims and witnesses. This resistance involves the purposeful omission of key information and the fabrication of stories,” Colerain Township Police Chief Mark
