The death toll in Saturday’s gun rampage in West Texas rose to seven on Sunday, Fox News reported, and police said they would hold a news conference later in the day.

Police had earlier said five people, including the gunman, were killed in the mass shooting that began with a traffic stop and ended when the shooter was cornered by officers in the parking lot in Odessa, Texas.
