Three Americans have been killed in a hostage standoff at a natural gas complex in Algeria.

Two of those victims are from Texas, seven other Americans made it out safely.

According to one national news organization, one of the seven survivors is a man from Odessa.

However, all other national networks have not confirmed that.

We've been working to confirm that the Odessa man was one of the people who got out safely.

We did knock on the door of the man's house but no one answered.

Neighbors also didn't want to comment.
