Odessa Active Shooter Police Shootout Caught on Camera
At least 21 people were shot and five people were killed Saturday in a series of shootings in the area of Midland and Odessa, Texas, an Odessa city official told Fox News.
A suspect, who local police identified only as a white male in his mid-30s, was shot and killed at an Odessa movie theater, local police said.
“It has been confirmed that the active shooter was shot and killed at the Cinergy in Odessa. There is no active shooter at this time,” the Midland Police Department said on its Facebook page.
Odessa spokesperson Devin Sanchez told Fox News that the incident began with the shooting of a Texas state trooper at 3:17 p.m. during a traffic stop on Interstate 20 in Midland County. After that shooting, the suspect continued west into Odessa and shot another person Interstate 20 before driving around the eastern part of the city, where there are multiple scenes and victims, the official said. At some point, the subject stole a mail truck, and there were additional shootings, the official said.
The suspect then traveled back east in the stolen mail truck toward the movie theater, where various law enforcement agencies contacted him. Gunfire was exchanged, and the suspect was killed.
