Peaceful End to Standoff

A Lubbock teen is in jail following a standoff that occurred near 50th St. and Slide Road Saturday morning.

18 year-old Joshua McAfee was transferred to the Lubbock County Jail late Saturday evening after a standoff that involved the Lubbock Police Department as well as the Lubbock SWAT team. He has been charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon in addition to a prior warrant for burglary of a habitat.

The incident occurred around 10:00 a.m. on Saturday. As McAfee attempted to stand up on the hood of his truck with a gun to his head, he was shot with a bean bag round by a police officer from a 12 gauge rifle.

He then dropped his weapon and fell down on the hood and then on to the ground. He was taken to University Medical Center for evaluation before being charged.
