15 Hour Standoff Ends with Murder-Suicide

After a 15 hour standoff with Lubbock police, Jason Flowers fatally shot his hostage, ex-girlfriend Michelle King, and then shot himself.

The two deaths are a result of a more than 15 hour standoff that began around 4am at the Camelot Apartment complex at 65th Drive and Avenue L. Tonight Lubbock Police remain at the scene investigating the murder-suicide.

Lubbock Police Chief Claude Jones recounts the events when the shooting started, "around 8 o'clock this evening we were in negotiations with Jason Flowers. He told us that he was going to prepare to move things away from the door to where he could prepare to give himself up and at that time multiple shots were heard inside the room.  We did gain entry through a wall on the outside of the apartment with our rescue vehicle. We used two flash bangs once inside. Michelle King was found shot several times and he was laying on the bed that was propped in front of the door barricading the door inside of the apartment and he also was shot."

During the standoff police did not shoot at the suspect and no officers were injured.
