Odessa, TX (Big 2 News) - "Everybody's close-knit, everybody cooks for each other, looks out for each other,” said Billy Flax.

Billy Flax describes this community as close.

And a shooting that happened just before five Thursday brought them even closer.

"People just drove up and they had, I guess, a disagreement or a dispute,” said Flax.

A dispute, that turned deadly.

Officials tell me twenty-eight year old Shon Beck died from his gun-shot wounds.

I’m told Beck was visiting his girlfriend who lives in the neighborhood, and that was the last time she would see him.

"I think he got accidentally shot,” said Flax.

Police say Joshua Tolivar was also shot, but is not battling life threatening injuries.

Flax believes this is gang related.

But, Billy Flax isn’t just a neighbor, he’s a relative of Beck, something I found out late in our conversation.

"He's making it, so hopefully he'll be alright,” said Flax.
