When police arrived at the scene Sunday they found the victim next to a car. He was barely alive and soon died at the hospital.
“The officer saw a victim who had been shot apparently one time,” said Micky Ary, Odessa City Administrator.
FOX 4’s Shannon O’Brien went to Odessa and spoke to neighbors who live on the street where the man was killed. One neighbor didn’t realize anything had happened until she noticed a glow outside her door.
“They had a big, tall deal, with spotlights and had it all lit up and they were walking all around and they had the yellow tape up, up there,” described Marty Brunetti, neighbor.
Police remained on the scene until 8:00 a.m. Monday, investigating the first murder in Odessa in anyone’s recent memory.
