The Ector County Sheriff’s Office is investigating these shootings and Sheriff Mike Griffis held a press conference Friday morning to answer questions.

During the conference, Griffis would not confirm nor deny that each case was related. He did say deputies received different descriptions of the shooter from witnesses at each scene.

"We will catch this man," Sheriff Griffis said. "My guys are mad. We're going to get him."

The City of Odessa also took to Facebook to warn the public of the situation.

"There is not an active shooter at this time.," the post read. "However, we do want to warn the public to be on the lookout for a possible serial gunman in Ector County, who is driving a white pickup."

Both city officials and local law enforcement encourage anyone with information or anyone who sees any suspicious activity, contact the Ector County Sheriff’s Office at 432-335-3050.
