More than 20 people have been shot, with unconfirmed reports of at least two dead after a gunman opened fire at a homecoming party in Greenville, Texas.

The incident happened just after midnight on Sunday local time. Eemergency services have rushed to the scene at The Party Venue in Greenville, near Dallas, where a celebration was said to have been taking place for Texas A&M University at Commerce.
