HOUSTON - At least five people were dead in West Texas after a man who was stopped by state troopers when his vehicle failed to signal a left turn opened fire and fled, shooting more than 20 people before he was killed by officers outside a movie theater, authorities said Saturday. Three law enforcement officers were among the injured.
Here's how politicians are reacting to the most recent shooting:
President Donald Trump:
Vice President Mike Pence:
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott:
Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren:
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke:
Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden:
Former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords:
"Our nation is devastated that these tragedies keep happening. Too many communities are suffering. Too many lives will never be the same. We must end this horror. I'm furious that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump are refusing to do anything to keep us safe. It's clear this is a national emergency that requires swift action. America is calling on them to show leadership and pass laws that can save lives. We can't take anymore heartbreak."
