ODESSA, Texas (AP) — Police said there are “multiple gunshot victims” in West Texas after reports of two suspects opening fire on Saturday in the area of Midland and Odessa.
Midland police said at least one suspect was shot and killed near the Cinergy movie theater in Odessa.
One or possibly two suspects hijacked a U.S. Postal Service vehicle and were firing at random, hitting multiple people, Odessa police said. “At this time there are multiple gunshot victims,” Odessa police said in a posting on Facebook.
The Texas Department of Public Safety has urged residents to avoid major highways in the area, including Interstate 20.
No other details were immediately available. Odessa is about 20 miles (32 kilometers) southwest of Midland. Both are more than 300 miles (483 kilometers) west of Dallas.
