Texas, US

At least seven people were killed and 21 wounded by a man who randomly fired at motorists in the Texan town of Odessa in the southern United States before being shot dead by police on Saturday.
The gunman hijacked a US postal truck and opened fire at random in the US state of Texas Saturday, shooting dead at least five people and wounding many others before dying in a shootout with officers. “We have at least 21 victims, 21 shot dead and at least seven deaths at this stage,” a police spokesman for the city of Odessa told reporters.
