Police release details in the case of Dyone Johnson

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock, TX (KCBD) – Police say they have the evidence to link a carjacking suspect to four armed robberies in Lubbock and a shooting at officers.

24-year-old Dyone Johnson allegedly took his life in Amarillo after law enforcement officials in the panhandle say he robbed three people at gunpoint. The Lubbock chase and the gunshot were both captured on police dash camera, and Tuesday the department released the video.

Lubbock detectives waited for evidence results before positively linking Johnson to a crime spree and police shooting - they wanted to be certain they didn't need to be looking for someone else.

Police confirmed Tuesday that Dyone Johnson was behind the wheel of the stolen blue Mazda that detectives say was taken from a Monterey student on March 21st.

"I want to be clear, we are not just taking a deceased individual and hanging cases on him as sometimes it is perceived police do," said Cpt. Greg Stevens who added detectives discovered stolen items linked to debit and credit cards Johnson allegedly took.

Police say the four robberies were committed over two days by a suspect matching Johnson's description. Cpt. Stevens said some of the victims identified the blue car, and two picked Johnson out of a photo spread. Police did not elaborate on all of the evidence obtained that they say points to Johnson.

"In all the robberies it was apparent and very clear Dyone Johnson was the sole actor and the individual who perpetrated each one," said Cpt. Stevens.

If Johnson were alive, Police say there would be enough evidence to obtain warrants for the other crimes. Detectives continue to look into links Johnson may have to any other open cases.
