Friday Standoff Ends With Fatal Shooting

The investigation continues into a 15-hour hostage stand-off that came to a tragic end around 8-o'clock last night.

Lubbock police investigators remain on the scene of a deadly stand-off that occurred last night. Today, officials are processing the scene at 65th drive and Avenue L. That's where 24-year-old Jason Flowers shot and killed his 23-year-old former girlfriend Michelle King. He then turned the gun on himself.

The 15-hour standoff at a South Lubbock apartment complex began around 4-o'clock Friday morning. That's when Flowers took King hostage. For hours, Police negotiators tried to talk Flowers into giving himself up. Then, around 8-o'clock, Flowers told authorities he would; that's when shots were fired.

"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 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." stated Claude Jones, Chief of the Lubbock Police Department.

Police did not shoot at the suspect during the standoff, and no officers were injured.
