Odessa Gunman Obtained Gun Through Private Sale

HeadlineSep 05, 2019

As investigations continue following the deadly mass shooting in West Texas Saturday, authorities say the gunman was barred from purchasing firearms because he was deemed mentally unfit. He failed a firearms background check in 2014. Investigators believe they may have identified the individual who made a private sale of the gun used in the rampage, which killed seven people and injured at least 25 others.
