ODESSA, Texas (Big 2/Fox 24) – It all started when Deputies were looking for two people to serve a state patrol warrant. Now, one of the suspects is dead and an ECSO Deputy is recovering after being shot.

According to the Ector County Sheriff’s Office, a chase began Thursday night around seven in the evening. It all ended at the intersection of Ada and Hickory where shots were fired.

A viewer we spoke to, who did not want to be on camera, said it all happened so fast her family heard gunshots, ran inside, and waited for it to be over.

Video sent to ABC Big 2/Fox 24 News from a viewer showing part of the chase on Ada St. & Hickory Ave.


The video we obtained shows law enforcement chasing a suspect on foot after fire was exchanged. Law enforcement is still looking for another person believed to be involved.

Sheriff Mike Griffis says they were serving a warrant and there may be other charges. The Texas Rangers are now in charge of the investigation.
