Suspect killed, multiple people injured in active shooting in Texas

The terrifying chain of events began when Texas state troopers tried pulling over a gold vehicle mid-Saturday afternoon on Interstate 20 for failing to signal a left turn, Texas Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Katherine Cesinger said.

He said the suspect used a rifle to shoot the Texas Department of Public Safety officer who had stopped his vehicle, but did not know any more details about the weapon. He shot more than 20 people before being killed by officers outside a movie theater.

The City of Odessa reports 20 injuries in connection to one of the alleged shootings, CBS7 reports.

Odessa police spokesman Steve LeSueur said at least one of the shooting victims remained in a life-threatening condition today. During the confusing moments of the pursuit, authorities thought there might be two shooters firing from two vehicles. "You're going to be OK", the man then says before asking other people if they are OK. All three were in stable condition as of Saturday night, according to CBS News.


Police say the shooting began with a traffic spot that spiraled out of control.

At least five people have been killed and more than 20 injured after a mass shooting in Texas.

US President Donald Trump said he had been briefed on the shooting and added that Federal Bureau of Investigation and other law enforcement agencies were "fully engaged". Federal Bureau of Investigation and Law Enforcement is fully engaged. But he said that one of the patients he included earlier was injured in an incident unrelated to the shooting.

Authorities are now investigating why a man stopped by state troopers for failing to signal a left turn opened fire on them and sped off.


Update at 6 p.m. CT: The Midland Police Department released a statement through its Facebook page Saturday afternoon regarding the West Texas shootings.

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

The shooting follows weeks after a the shocking El Paso shooting, which was the most deadly mass shooting in Texas' state history. We will unite, as Texans always do, to respond to this tragedy.

An FBI spokesperson told CBS News that six people were killed, not including the suspect, and 24 were wounded in total.


"The state of Texas and the Department of Public Safety are working closely with local law enforcement to provide resources as needed and deliver justice for this heinous attack", he said, ABC reported.
