An Odessa woman tearfully described her shocking encounter with a mass shooter who indiscriminately fired at police officers and civilians during a deadly rampage in Texas that left seven dead and 22 wounded.
Speaking with local press, Shauna Saxton said she looked the gunman in the face while sitting in traffic just seconds before he discharged his weapon. Saxton’s husband was in the passenger seat while her young grandson was in the back seat.
“I looked over my shoulder to the left, and a gold car pulled up,” Saxton said. “The man was there, and he had a very large gun and it was pointing at me. In that moment, the only thing I could think about was driving away really fast but there were two cars in front of me.”
“The look on his face was…he was not self-possessed,” Saxton said elsewhere in the interview. “It wasn’t a methodical thing. He was just randomly trying to kill whoever he could kill.” Saxton told reporters that no one in her car was injured. Her vehicle was not damaged.
