A mass random shooting in the US state of Texas has left at least five people dead and many more injured, police say.

At least one gunman shot randomly at people while driving round the western cities of Odessa and Midland on Saturday afternoon.

A US Postal Service van was hijacked during the incident.

Police now say a suspect - a white male - has been shot and killed, but reports of other suspects at large are being investigated.

A police spokesman confirmed five people had been killed and a further 21 had been injured. Police officers were among the victims, he told reporters.

Police added that no motive had yet been established for the incident.

The shootings come exactly four weeks after a gunman shot and killed 22 people and injured 24 others in the Texan city of El Paso.

      Utrecht, Netherlands
      A SHOOTING attack on Monday in the Dutch city of Utrecht that left three people dead and nine injured was being investigated as a possible case of terrorism, authorities said, and police were focusing their hunt on a gunman who escaped the scene.
      "At this stage, we can confirm three deaths and nine wounded, three of them seriously," Utrecht Mayor Jan van Zanen said in a video statement on Twitter. "We are working on the principle that it was a terrorist attack," he added.
      Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte had earlier said there were "possible deaths" and that a terrorist motive was "not excluded".
      The Netherlands' main counterterrorism agency raised its assessment of the threat in Utrecht province, just south-east of Amsterdam, to the highest level and said it had activated a crisis team. The Dutch paramilitary police increased security at airports and other vital infrastructure points.

      Kalamazoo County, Michigan authorities say last evening's shooting spree resulted in six deaths with two others seriously wounded. Each victim was shot multiple times. Police acknowledge that an earlier report that a 14-year-old girl died is incorrect; she is alive, but "severely, gravely" injured. The suspect, a 45-year-old man who is a Uber driver without a prior criminal record, was taken into custody without a struggle.
