(Worthy News) - Five people were killed and at least 21 were wounded — including three cops — in a wild West Texas shooting spree by a lone gunman finally slain by police Saturday in a movie theater parking lot, authorities said.
The bloodshed began about 3:13 p.m. when a pair of Texas state troopers stopped the shooter for failing to signal a left turn on an interstate highway between the cities of Odessa and Midland, said officials.
The driver aimed a rifle at the rear window of his car and blasted away several shots at the troopers, wounding one of them. [ Source: NY Daily News (Read More...) ]
