Watch as officers confront Odessa shooter
Five people were killed and at least 21 others were injured when they were shot Saturday in Odessa, Texas, law enforcement authorities said.
A male assailant was shot to death at Cinergy, a movie theater in Odessa, in an exchange of gunfire with a law enforcement officer, Odessa police Chief Michael Gerke said.
A 17-month-old who was shot in the face was among the victims, KWES-TV reported. A postal worker, the driver of a mail truck that the suspect carjacked, was also shot.
The suspect was a man in his mid-30s who was driving a sedan that a law enforcement officer stopped on Interstate 20 near Midland before the shootings, Gerke said.
Three law enforcement officers were among the victims, Gerke said.
The gunman was initially in a sedan and later carjacked a United States Postal Service truck and shot its driver, the Odessa American reported.
Authorities had not released the victims’ names or ages Saturday night.
