Odesa police say the death toll in a West Texas shooting rampage is now seven after a man stopped by state troopers opened fire and fled, shooting people at random. Police later shot the gunman.   

Odesa police spokesman Steve LeSueur said Sunday that at least one person remains in ``life-threatening'' condition. Authorities have said the gunman shot more than 20 people before being killed by officers outside a movie theatre.   

Police say the shooter was a white man in his 30s but have not released a name or possible motive.   

The shooter hijacked a mail carrier truck on Saturday afternoon and fired at random as he drove in the area of Odesa and Midland.  

Odesa police had scheduled a news conference for noon.
