FBI agents are searching a shack connected to the shooter
Members of the FBI Evidence Response Team Unit are walking in and out of a small shack here in West Odessa, carrying out bags of what appear to be evidence collected from a scene connected to the shooter.
I don’t know if it is standard in this specific area for the Federal Government to get involved immediately in what is a local, at most a state jurisdictional case. How is this FBI jurisdiction, and why are they gaining entry to this man’s property? Where was the local Sheriff or State Police?
The property — a small tan structure made of metal — has had its door busted through, and authorities have taped off the area around it.
A law enforcement official told CNN earlier that the FBI was executing a search warrant at a property here believed to be connected to the shooter.
The property is off a dirt road in a rural community about 15 miles west of the movie theater where the gunman was taken down after the Saturday shooting spree.
