LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – The man accused of shooting another in the back several times in the Wal Mart parking lot near 4th & Frankford in February made a brief appearance in court Wednesday.

Sultan Al-Bizri, 22, faces both state and federal charges. At the federal level he is accused of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and possession of a stolen firearm.

At the state level, Al-Bizri faces an assault charge and more; accused of shooting Devon Napper, 20, who survived. Police at the time said Al-Bizri rear-ended Napper in a Taco Bell drive thru. Napper told police he followed Al-Bizri to the nearby Wal Mart parking lot where they got in a verbal argument. Napper told police he thought he had been shot at least 10 times.

Al-Bizri was to be arraigned before federal Magistrate Nancy Koenig Wednesday morning, however, Al-Bizri was unable to hire the attorney he wanted. So he has been appointed an attorney and the federal arraignment has been rescheduled for Monday. Even if Al-Bizri could convince the magistrate to release him from federal custody he would still have to bond out on the state charges to get out of jail.
