HOUSTON, TEXAS - The man who killed seven people and wounded 22 others in a rolling rampage across West Texas last Saturday was fired from his trucking job hours before the massacre, media and officials reported.

Hours later, Ator was pulled over in Midland by Texas state troopers on Interstate 20 for failing to use a turn signal, police said. Ator was later cornered by officers in the carpark of a cinema complex in Odessa. He was shot and killed. Among the dead was Ms Grandos, who various news media reported was at the end of her shift and on the telephone with her twin sister Rosie Grandos.

The Washington Post reported that others among the dead were Mr Edwin Peregrino, 25, who was killed outside of the home he moved into a few weeks ago.
