BREAKING: AT LEAST 5 DEAD, 21 PEOPLE REPORTEDLY INJURED IN MIDLAND-ODESSA AREA OF TEXAS.

UPDATE: The Odessa-area CBS affiliate reports that “The City of Midland tells CBS7 that authorities have taken a suspect into custody at the Cinergy [movie theater] of Midland,” adding that “From the City of Odessa: 20 injuries have been reported in connection to the shooting.”

CNN reports that “Police in Midland said officers are looking for two shooters in two separate vehicles, a gold/white small Toyota truck and a US Postal Service van.”

As always, early reports are likely to be contradictory and/or inaccurate. Rick Moran will be updating the story as it develops at PJM, at the link atop this post.
