LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Families are identifying loved ones as the victims of this weekend's shooting in West Texas.

The gunman killed seven people and wounded 22 others in neighboring cities Midland and Odessa on Saturday. Since then, the community has held several memorials.

Leaders say the youngest killed was 15 and the oldest was 57-year-old Rudy Arco.

Arco's sister told the Arizona Republic that he left his Las Vegas home after the anniversary of the 1 October shooting hoping Odessa would be a safer place to live.
