The Midland Sheriffs Office says they have things in place to be ready for a possible mass shooting like the one in Orlando this past weekend.

According to NewsWest 9, Sheriff Gary Painter says he can have law enforcement officials from several other areas nearby ready to assist in the case of a mass shooting incident like the attack in Orlando.

"There will be officers from all over this part of Texas and New Mexico. They would rush in here without a doubt they would be here. All I have to do is say help," said Painter in an interview with our media partner NewsWest 9.
