Death toll in Texas mass shooting rises to 7
The death toll from the weekend’s Texas freeway massacre has risen to seven, with at least one of the injured remaining in “life-threatening” condition, authorities said Sunday.
The gunman, who first opened fire at troopers after being stopped in a routine traffic stop, went on a drive-by rampage where he eventually killed seven and injured more than 20 people, authorities said.
The shooting, a white man in his 30s who has not been identified, was then also killed in a shootout with cops in a movie theater parking lot.
Odessa police spokesman Steve LeSueur said that at least one person remains in “life-threatening” condition.
Others hit included 17-month-old Anderson Davis who is expected to survive after being struck by a bullet fragment, according to a GoFundMe page set up on behalf of her family that raised over $110,000 by Sunday morning.
The shooter hijacked a mail carrier truck on Saturday afternoon and fired at random as he drove in the area of Odessa and Midland.
