According to reports, 7 people have been killed, and around 24 people are expected to be injured.
The cities of Midland and Odessa in Texas witnessed drive-by mass shooting on Saturday. The locals, pedestrians, stoppers-by, shoppers, and motor-bikers were the victim of shooting in broad daylight.
A similar incident of mass-shooting had happened two-three weeks ago in the city of El Paso and Dayton, Ohio. That two massacres left the whole nation devastated. The sad news that took the life of 31 people haven’t still grieved; United State faced another heart-breaking bloodbath.
Great job by Texas Law Enforcement and First Responders in handling the terrible shooting tragedy yesterday. Thank you also to the FBI, @GregAbbott_TX and all others. A very tough and sad situation!

Police reported that a white male, in his 30s, upon utilizing the opportunity of traffic stop around 3:25 p.m. on the intersection between Midland and Odessa opened a random fire when a state trooper tried to pull out the gunmen. The gunmen abandoned his car and hijacked a postal service truck nearby and continued mass-shooting. The gunman shot three officers, but they weren’t killed; fortunately, they left wounded. The police officials killed the gunmen on the spot, near a movie theatre while the wounded officers are now in an improved condition.
Six people were killed on the spot and one over-night in a hospital. The local hospitals received the wounded in which ten of the victims are in critical condition. The suspect who fired almost everyone on his sight also killed a 17-month-old baby.
This is numbered to be the 25th mass shooting in the United States alone this year. The government of Texas is trying to implement 10 new laws against the use of guns.
