Seth Ator was killed by Odessa police after going on a shooting spree, killing seven people and injuring more than 20.
There was an active shooter in Odessa, Texas on Saturday afternoon.
20 people were injured in the shooting.
Seven people were killed.
36-year-old Seth Ator, a resident of Odessa, Texas was named as the assailant on Sunday nearly 24 hours after the shooting.
He opened fire on state troopers during a traffic stop.
Police in Texas just revealed that the Odessa shooter had a criminal record. Sounding more and more likely that he was in possession of a gun illegally. A new gun law can’t stop a shooter if the shooter is already using a gun illegally.
Governor Greg Abbott called for keeping weapons “out of criminals’ hands” in a tweet on Monday.
He noted the Odessa shooter had failed a background check.
Not only did the Odessa gunman have a criminal history…
…he also previously failed a gun purchase background check in Texas…
…& he didn’t go thru a background check for the gun he used in Odessa.
We must keep guns out of criminals’ hands.
