At least five people were killed and 21 others were injured Saturday in a mass shooting in western Texas, officials said.

Odessa Police Chief Michael Gerke called it a “horrific day” after the shooting deaths in Odessa and nearby Midland, Texas.

Police said the incident started when a suspect hijacked a U.S. Postal Service vehicle, then drove around and randomly fired at people.
