ODESSA/MIDLAND, TEXAS — A hijacked mail truck is being used to move around a suspect or suspects, who appear to be randomly shooting at people. As of this writing, it would seem that one of the gunmen is in custody, and police have reason to believe that another is still on the loose.

Another vehicle and possible suspect are trying to be located, with police saying they are looking for a gold/white small Toyota truck. The other vehicle is a USPS Postal Van. It is unclear which vehicle the captured suspect was driving.
