FBI dredging White River in search of murder weapon

CROSBYTON, TX (KCBD) - The FBI is dredging White River in Crosby County, just north of White River Lake.

Agents are searching for a weapon that may have been used in a Big Spring murder case. At least, one vehicle belonging to the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office was spotted at the scene, to assist.

The FBI has not said, specifically, that this weapon is tied to the May 2008 drive-by shooting, where members of the Latin Kings street gang fired into a crowd gathered at the home of a rival gang member. That shooting left two people dead, and another four injured.

If this search is tied to that case, previous statements made by the U.S. Department of Justice indicate the murder weapon was an AK-47 assault rifle.
