Neighbor startled by late night shooting

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock Police Officer is now on administrative leave after a police-involved shooting left one man in critical condition late Friday night.

It started when police received a call just before 11 p.m. about a robbery at a home in central Lubbock. Neighbors said they were startled when they heard gun shots just before midnight.

"Last night I heard somebody shoot a gun by the tree, and then I told my grandma, and then I looked outside and there was nothing," said Miles DVaughn who was staying with his grandma when the incident occurred.

The witness who made the call told police they saw a white car back into the driveway of a house at 1902 63rd street followed by the sound of breaking glass. Officer Jess Karren arrived soon after and found two men running away from the home. Karren said the two men jumped into a white vehicle, and he drew his gun as he approached them. He said he told the suspects to stop, but had to fire two shots at the driver when he gassed the car in Karren's direction. The vehicle then sped off.

Officer Karren is now on temporary administrative leave because that is standard policy for officers involved in a shooting.

About a half-hour after the shooting, dispatch sent police to a disturbance at Applegate Shady Acres, a mobile home park along I-27. The caller said they discovered a man with possible gunshot wounds on the front porch.   Investigators determined the suspect is connected to the burglary, but have not yet released his name.

EMS took the suspect to University Medical Center with a gunshot wound to his torso. Shortly after, police found the suspect's vehicle near 84th and the interstate. Officers are still searching for other suspects involved in this case.

If you know anything that could help investigators, call Crime Line at 741-1000.

LPD will hold a press conference about the shooting Monday. NewsChannel 11 will be there to bring you the latest.
