Authorities update investigation into mass shooting in Midland and Odessa, Texas | USA TODAY

Seven people were killed and 23 others were hurt when a gunman opened fire in the Midland and Odessa areas of Texas.

It started with a routine traffic stop that turned violent. Police say the gunman shot at two Texas Department of Public Safety officers then fled on the interstate, firing at other motorists and passers-by along the way. At one point, police say the suspect stole a mail truck. The rampage ended in a Cinergy movie theater in Odessa as officers cornered the assailant and fatally shot him.

  1. That gunman is my hero 😁😘☺️

  2. Yes, I need more guns, a flamethrower and a few grenades for personal protection – do not worry I am not mentally ill, on Pharma drugs, and as the objects in question do not cause murder none of this should worry you. Sound logic….

  3. According to the UN Office on Drugs and Crime's International Homicide Statistics database,
    The United States ranks 83rd in intentional homicides per 100,000 people.
    The media hype about mass shootings exists ONLY to scare you into giving up your constitutional rights.

  4. George Mason, co-author of the 2nd amendment:
    "I ask who are the militia? They consist now of the whole people"
    "To disarm the people, that is the best and most effectual way to enslave them."

  5. I feel like the world is ending because of all of the shootings that have been happening

  6. The incompetence of our law enforcement is ridiculous. Just saying he “ rambled on “ does not mean you are not responsible for ignoring this situation that could have been prevented. Both local and Federal government dropped the ball here.

  7. America was always great. It's getting greater every day. Hahaha

  8. All white men need to be profiled on a regular. These motherfuckers will shoot up anything from babyshowers, funerals, churches, drag queen shows, easter egg hunts and so much more. They have all the privilege in the world and yet they still act like psychos. They cannot be trusted. They need to be exterminated immediately!

  9. If any towns need to be cleaned up it'd be midland an Hodessa,

  10. red flag laws should also revoke drivers license that will stop them from getting to their intended target?? after all they would not drive without a license thats illegal??

  11. Bang, bang, bang, pew, pew, pew… Fascinating!

  12. Enough is enough. Guns enable people to shoot. Plain & simple. Stop dancing around the issue & pass legislation banning ownership of guns unless there is enough reason to own one & make it mandatory for background checks in all 50 states. Sheesh.

  13. God so glad I moved to Japan, my country has gone to shit! I wont be coming back!

  14. More people are killed in Chicago in ONE WEEKEND than here. Just not as dramatic.

  15. 2 hours, 10 miles, but not one good guy with a gun was found. not one.
