Three police officers were wounded in the shooting, including Zack Owens . The Midland police officer was shot multiple times in the arm and hand and suffered glass shards in his eye, according to a GoFundMe launched by his family.
“Midland Police Officer Zack Owens was shot in the line of duty during an active shooter situation in Odessa & Midland, TX on August 31, 2019. Officer Owens was shot multiple times in the arm and hand. As well as suffering from glass shards in his eye which is his most serious injury,” a GoFundMe page set up to help Zack with his medical costs reads.
The gunman, who has yet to be named, went on a rampage throughout the Texas communities after a traffic stop, shooting 21 people and killing 5 of them. GoFundMe pages have also been set up to help the families of Leila Hernandez, a teenage girl killed in the shooting spree, and Anderson Davis, a 17-month-old girl who was wounded but survived. Authorities have yet to officially identify the victims. They say that three law enforcement officers were wounded. Other accounts have given the officer’s name as Zac or Zach Owens, but the GoFundMe page uses the spelling Zack and online records give his name as Zackary Owens.
