PLANO, TX – Police say nine people are dead after a man went on a shooting rampage during a cookout at his ex-wife’s home.

Meredith Hight, 27, was having friends over to cook out and watch football when her gathering of close friends was interrupted by her ex-husband, Spencer Hight.

Meredith and Spencer were married in 2011 but stopped living together this past March. According to court records, Meredith filed for divorce in July, citing “discord or conflict of personalities.”

Since then, Meredith has made numerous posts on social media regarding her new life, moving forward, and needing a roommate to help pay the bills at the house she and Spencer purchased in 2015.

Spencer, who was now living in an apartment, made several posts complaining about his ex-wife, and his pain medication making him feel like a zombie. It did not seem Spencer was dealing with the divorce too well, and it all came to a head when he showed up at Meredith’s cookout.

Crystal Sugg, a witness, told reporters that she saw Meredith and Spencer arguing around 7:45 p.m. outside of the home and that when Meredith tried going back inside the home, Spencer pulled out a gun and opened fire.

Within a few minutes, a police officer was at the scene and found multiple people suffering from gunshot wounds in the backyard while shooting was still going on inside the home.

Deciding to not wait for backup, the officer entered the home where he encountered Spencer. The officer put an end to Spencer’s shooting rampage by dropping his pathetic ass then and there. In total, nine people are dead, including Spencer, with one person still in the hospital in critical condition.

Police haven’t released the names of all the victims (or possible survivors), stating they are waiting until they have notified the families of the victims.

What set Spencer off that day is anyone’s guess, but a friend saw him at a nearby bar before the shooting and said Spencer looked upset. Monday would have been the couple’s sixth wedding anniversary.

    That’s how this shit usually happens; going from shots to…shots.

  • Great article, pulls it all together from various sources I have read. 🙂

  • Taster’sChoice

    Damn. I wonder if Meredith found that new roommate and if she was among the casualties. How would that be for some bad luck?

  • Old Man Metal

    Kudos to the cop! Same thing happened when Dimebag got killed; one nearby cop got there first and didn’t wait for backup. Ended that shit quick. People are alive today because a good cop showed up first.

  • Wow.. so sad

  • itsknotme

    Still unsolved, police found no steaks, potato salad, baked beans and utensils at the scene. And more mysterious is, later that day, all responding officers requested larger belts.

  • Marco Torres 🙁

  • Some one at the cookout should have been carrying a gun.

    Homeboy’s got a worse haircut than Geoff Tate. Head looks like a friggin’ deformed testicle.

    This was Texas and no one was packing heat?
    Pathetic.
    Glad the pansy is dead.

  • FAS face.

  • Read that it was a “divorce party” and the game just happened to be on. I’m sure he’s shown signs and red flags before…the world is now a better place without him. Just sad he had to take 8 others with him.

  • Leslie Mashmann

    Wacko with a gun – and he kills all those poor innocent people because he was upset with his wife. Mad world. Sad world. I hate this shit.

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    Happy anniversary douchebag. I guess she got all the friends in the divorce settlement.

  • More like gay face. Those brows…

  • Mental. R.I.P.

  • Wife’s last words…”Oh Sh#t it’s Spencer”

  • He must have been one heck of a shot to kill 9. That’s a lot of kills for 1 gunman. Damn shame.

  • steboto

    Maybe some people would have been if the wife had tipped them off – she had to have some idea that he was armed and had to prove his non-gayness

  • Insane.

  • nsr, it’s fkn Texas

    I had an ex show up at my old apartment threating me once. Thankfully I was dating my husband and him and his friend were over and thoroughly beat 10 different shades of shit out of him. Never heard from him again. Scary to think if he had, had a gun.

    A good thing to know before rooming with someone is if they have a psycho ex.
