There are 16 fertilizer production sites in Texas like the one that exploded in West, but authorities aren’t clear how many of those might be built near schools or other residential centers, a top state official said Monday.
A man suspected in a West Texas shooting rampage that left one woman dead and five others wounded was a Marine who was wanted for questioning in a slaying in North Carolina, officials said Monday.
Texas law enforcement officials are launching a criminal investigation into last month’s deadly fertilizer plant explosion.
The bodies of 12 people have been recovered after an enormous Texas fertilizer plant explosion that demolished surrounding neighborhoods for blocks and left more about 200 other people injured, authorities said Friday.
