LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Tyrone Robinson was questioned by Lubbock Police on Thursday for information on the three deadly shootings in six days. He turned himself in around 11:30 a.m. Thursday morning and was placed under arrest for an aggravated assault warrant from February.

Six days and three deadly shootings, and Lubbock Police think they are all connected. The most recent shooting happened Tuesday night with the murder of 23-year-old Aldo Cervantes.

The first shooting happened last Thursday on East 8th Street when 36-year-old Angela Holt was shot and killed, and 34-year-old Trent Johnson was critically injured. The second homicide was last Friday at a house on East Rice Street, where 23-year-old Daniel Wilbon was found shot to death.

"Mr. Robinson is somebody the detectives do want to question," said Captain Greg Stevens with the Lubbock Police Department. 

"He did come in and was placed under arrest based on the aggravated assault warrant and again I want to emphasis that is all he is wanted for," said Stevens.

Right now Robinson is not a suspect in the three homicides, he is just being questioned by police.

"I'm not sure whether he wanted to come in to offer up information he may have about them offer about them or to clear his name or what, I don't know what his motivation was," said Stevens.

Police tell NewsChannel 11 when Robinson turned himself in he was alone. He did not have a family member or an attorney with him.
