EDEN, Texas (AP) – A West Texas sheriff wounded by a man who killed a woman and injured four other people in a rampage Sunday says the shooter “was intent on shooting anybody and everybody” as he drove.
Concho County Sheriff Richard Doane said Tuesday that Lance Cpl. Esteban J. Smith pulled up behind one car carrying three people and started firing at them. Doane says the shooter hit one passenger in the cheek before the driver slammed on his brakes, turned around and headed toward Eden where he hid the vehicle in a car dealership lot.
Doane says Smith later wounded him near his left ear after the Marine pulled over following a short chase.
Doane says he’s unsure whether Smith killed himself or was killed by authorities.
