ODESSA, Texas (Big 2/FOX 24) – Odessa’s police chief is reflecting on the mass shooting as well. Chief Michael Gerke hopes the community focuses on the families on the victims.
He’s grateful for the support law enforcement and everyone affected received then and says that same support even continues today.
“This community comes together. Not just Odessa, but the Permian Basin comes together and wraps their arms around those in need. I think it’s a very special area, proud to be here,” said Chief Gerke.
On Monday, we’ll also hear from the Odessa police officer injured in the mass shooting.
It’s part of a special edition of Fox 24 News as we remember and reflect– a year later.
