    "Mass Shooting" Odessa TX

    My wife is at work this afternoon. She works in a pharmacy in a grocery store (Market Street). Supposedly some bozo armed with a rifle started shooting at the Twin Peaks across the street. Then he appears to have shot some one in the Market Street parking lot before fleeing south in a gold colored car. They are saying "several" people have have been shot including at least one DPS trooper. Reports are that there may be a second shooter driving a stolen postal truck. Shooter was last seen heading toward Midland on I 20. I apparently drove past that area just minutes before it happened on my way home.

    Whew...I hope that they apprehend them soon...with extreme prejudice and pray that all who are shot survive with no lasting effect.

    First, I'm glad you and your wife are well! And prayers for those victims and their families.

    This is yet more fodder for the "We have to do something!!!" anti-gun crowd.

    One of my sixteen year old son's buddies claims his little brother and step mom were shot in the Market street parking lot. This is close to home.

    God bless the injured, and may there be no loss of life. With the possible exception of the shooter. Whatever it takes to stop him.

    First and foremost, I pray that no further loss of life happens there. I'd also like to hear from Smokewagon and Jake3501 to make sure they are okay. Hopefully they check in very soon.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."
