Texas secessionist shoots three

A secessionist in Texas shot three people, including two law enforcement officers, before surrendering.
A reclusive West Odessa man who authorities said shot and wounded two sheriff’s deputies and a private citizen on Friday surrendered to law enforcement officials Saturday afternoon after a nearly 22-hour standoff.

Victor Dewayne White, 55, was taken into custody about 1:30 p.m. after he started a fire on the porch of his residence, Ector County Sheriff Mark Donaldson said. White was treated at Medical Center Hospital for injuries sustained in the fire, and later booked into the Midland County Central Detention Center on one count of aggravated assault of a public servant, authorities said.

The Texas Rangers also obtained warrants for White’s arrest on two counts of attempted capital murder of a peace officer, authorities said.
