    ODESSA, Texas (AP) - Authorities say a man suspected in the fatal shooting of two Odessa police officers faces two counts of capital murder and three counts of attempted capital murder of a peace officer.

    The suspect, 58-year-old Larry White, allegedly shot and killed two officers and critically injured another while they were responding to a domestic disturbance in an hours-long standoff last
    night.

    The Texas Rangers are investigating the shooting, which killed 48-year-old corporal Arlie Jones and corporal John "Scott" Gardner. A third officer -- corporal Abel Marquez -- remains hospitalized in critical condition after being shot in the face.

    Authorities say the shooting began after they responded to an incomplete 9-1-1 call made by a woman from White's home.

    The officers weren't able to enter the house through the front door. When they tried to go in the back door, a man began firing at them. He then came out of the home and continued shooting before going back into the house, Mange said.

    The officers were able to call for backup before being shot, Goodson said. Officials with DPS, Midland police, Ector County Sheriff's Office, Midland County Sheriff's Office and other
    agencies responded to the scene.
