 At least five people are dead in West Texas after a man -- who was stopped by police when his vehicle failed to signal a left turn -- opened fire and fled.
     
He shot more than 20 people before he was killed by officers outside a movie theatre.
     
Three officers are among the injured.
     
The shooting began with a traffic stop in the heart of Texas oil country where gunfire was exchanged with police.
    
 It set off a chaotic afternoon during which the suspect hijacked a U-S Postal Service vehicle and began firing at random in the area of Odessa and Midland.
    
 This shooting comes just four weeks after a gunman in El Paso killed 22 people in a shooting at a Walmart.
