Missouri Shooting : Joseph Jesse Aldridge kills 7 in town of 50 then himself

(CNN)A small Missouri town's discovery that a gunman killed seven people and injured another Thursday night began when a girl managed to flee a residence where she heard gunfire.
She ran to a neighbor's house and called police, say investigators in Tyrone, Missouri.
Authorities then found a trail of death that was so staggering, a state trooper lost count at a news conference.
Seven people, all gunshot victims, were found dead in four residences in the small town of 50 people. One person managed to survive, and she was found wounded in one of the homes.
The gunman also was found dead Friday morning in a GMC pickup after going to another county more than 15 miles away, where he apparently shot himself. He was identified Friday as Joseph Jesse Aldridge, 36, who was believed to be a cousin to four of the seven slain victims, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said.
