The loss of life has ascended in an end of the week shooting binge in the West Texas urban communities of Odessa and Midland 

In any event 7 individuals have kicked the bucket after a shooter captured a mail truck Saturday and started taking shots haphazardly at individuals. The shooter, a white male in his mid-30s, was later shot and murdered by police outside a cinema in Odessa


The frenzy started when a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper ceased a gold Honda at 3:17 p.m. CT Saturday. The inhabitant of the Honda shot the trooper and fled west toward Odessa on Interstate 20, the expressway that associates Odessa and Midland. The two urban communities are only 20 miles separated 

The shooter shot a person on the interstate and after that headed to 42nd St. in Odessa, shooting different individuals there. Eventually during the frenzy, the shooter captured a mail truck


The shooter was later shot and murdered by police at Cinergy, a neighborhood cinema. His thought process isn't known as of now 

The shootings in West Texas come only half a month after a mass taking shots at a Walmart in El Paso left 22 individuals dead
