(KMID/ABC News) Police say there are “multiple gunshot victims” in central Texas after one or more suspects opened fire.

Police officials say the suspect hijacked a U.S. mail truck and was last seen in the area of 38th and Walnut.

The Midland Police Department said two suspected gunmen are believed to be at large, after reports of a shooter at a Home Depot in Odessa.

“We believe there are two shooters in two separate vehicles. One suspect is believed to be at the Cinergy in Midland and the other is believed to be driving on Loop 250 in Midland,” said Midland police. “The two vehicles in question are a gold/white small Toyota truck and a USPS postal van. Please stay away from these areas and stay indoors.”

Midland and Odessa are in West Texas, about 20 miles apart.

President Donald Trump has been briefed and the White House is monitoring the situation, according to ABC News.
