3:16 PM PT — According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, one suspect is in custody after 13 people were shot. It’s unclear if this suspect was the mail van driver, or the Toyota truck driver. The extent of injuries on the ground is also unclear at this point.
Police in Texas say at least two active shooters in two separate vehicles — one of which is a mail van — are firing rounds at drivers on the road … and 2 people are already dead.
The Midland Police Department are warning motorists between their city and neighboring Odessa to stay indoors, as someone in a gold and white Toyota truck and another person in a USPS postal van are shooting folks at random from within the vehicles. Authorities are saying the mail van was hijacked by at least one of the suspects.
The mayor of Midland, Jerry Morales, told the media that at least two people have already been killed and and possibly up to 20 others are injured, so far. The two suspects are said to have initially gone on a shooting spree at Home Depot near Odessa.
They are still at large, and clearly armed and dangerous.
