LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Friday night around 7 p.m. the Lubbock Police Department served an arrest warrant in a recent Lubbock homicide for 31-year-old Tyrone Robinson.  He is charged in the May 14th murder of 36-year-old Angela Holt.  She was the victim in the first of three recent murders. Last Thursday morning, police say Robinson shot Holt and 34-year-old Trent Johnson in the 24-hundred block of East 8th Street. Johnson drove to a home in the 17-hundred block of East Cornell to seek help. He was taken to the hospital, and Holt was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police would not say if Tyrone Robinson was involved in the other two murders, but they did say they are sure all three are related.

Police named Robinson as someone they wanted to question in the shootings after the third Lubbock homicide in less than a week. Robinson turned himself into police Thursday morning for a separate aggravated assault charge. He remains in the Lubbock County Jail on a $1 million bond for the murder warrant and a $500,000 bond for the prior aggravated assault warrant.

Police would not say if the shootings were gang or drug related, but did ensure us the victims were not random. "Obviously when there's gun fire and bullets flying around, that poses a risk to anybody in the near vicinity, so clearly that's a risk. In terms of the intended victims or the intended targets, I think I can safely say those aren't things that pose a risk to the public at large," said Captain Greg Stevens with the Lubbock Police Department. 

The police department thinks they will be able to name more suspects next week, but still need tips from the public. If you have any information call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
