A gunman killed four people in a shooting rampage in Texas on Saturday (August 31), authorities said, before being killed by police.

The bloodshed began on Saturday afternoon, when the gunman was stopped on Interstate 20 between the West Texas cities of Midland and Odessa.

Police said the suspect, a white man in his 30s, shot the police officer who pulled him over, and then took off towards Odessa where he drove to a Home Depot and opened fire on passersby.

At some point, authorities say, he hijacked a postal van which he crashed into a stationary vehicle outside a movie theater complex.

A gun battle with police ensued, and the suspect was shot dead.

Democratic presidential candidate and Texas native Beto O'Rourke had this to say: (SOUNDBITE) (English) DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE BETO O'ROURKE, SAYING: This is not some natural disaster.

This is a human made problem, with a human solution.

Twenty one people were injured, including a child under two, and three police officers.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said quote "our heats break" for the families of the victims. (SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE, SAYING: "The president and I and our administration remain absolutely determined to work with leaders in both parties in the Congress to take such steps that we can address and confront the scourge of mass atrocities in our country." The shooting comes just weeks after 22 people were killed at an El Paso Walmart store in early August.
