Five killed, including shooter, 21 injured in West Texas shooting

At Least 5 Killed Texas Shooting Suspect Confirmed Dead

Troopers with the Texas Department of Public Safety attempted to stop a gold sedan on Interstate 20, between the cities of Odessa and Midland, at 3:25 p.m. local time, for a traffic violation.

The suspect ditched his auto and hijacked a U.S. Postal Service vehicle and was firing at people, the police chief said. Police later confirmed both vehicles were used by the same person.

The police chief said he wasn't naming the shooter, described by officials Saturday as a white man in his 30s, because "I refuse to".

Those who were killed ranged in age from 15 to 57, Odessa Police Chief Michael Gerke said, suggesting more people could have died had police not killed the gunman outside a crowded movie theater.

Law enforcement officials told CBS News that the gunman was named Seth Ator, a man from the Odessa area.

Police said the shooter was shot and killed in the parking lot of the multiplex.

Tippin says seven of the shooting victims are listed in critical condition, including several who have already completed surgeries, and two others are in serious condition.

Mike Barrett said his friend was shot and hospitalized with injuries.

One of the people was believed to be a patient "caught in the action" and "not related" to the shootings, Tippin said.

The attack, the second mass shooting in Texas this month, prompted a round of calls for stricter gun laws from some hopefuls running for the Democratic nomination for president. Two law enforcement officers were injured. "We offer our unwavering support to the victims, their families, and all the people of Midland and Odessa". Among the injured, they said, was a state trooper in unknown condition. "One suspect is believed to be at the Cinergy in Midland and the other is believed to be driving on Loop 250 in Midland", said Midland police. He drove the mail truck back east, pursued by police, before crashing into a stationary vehicle behind the Odessa Cinergy multiplex complex, where he engaged in a gun battle with police and was shot dead, Gerke said.

Saturday's shooting came after a mass shooting in early August at an El Paso, Texas, Walmart, where numerous 22 victims were Hispanic.

He says Trump has spoken to the attorney general and that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is already assisting local law enforcement.

"We need to end this epidemic", former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke reacted on Twitter.

The terrifying chain of events began when state troopers tried pulling over a gold auto on Interstate 20 for failing to signal a left turn, Texas Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Katherine Cesinger said. "We will unite, as Texans always do, to respond to this tragedy".

The reported shootings come 28 days after the El Paso shooting at a Walmart in which 22 people were killed.
