A man wanted for an overnight shooting in East Lubbock is in custody. Terrence Lashan Rhone turned himself in after a high speed chase through the streets of East Lubbock Thursday afternoon.
Police still don't know if Rhone was actually in the car they were chasing, but they do know their suspect is off the street.
Rhone is described by police as an armed and dangerous man. Police issued a warrant for his arrest following a shooting that sent 29-year-old Larry Jerome Isaac to the hospital, where he is still fighting for life tonight. "Shortly after midnight we got a shooting call at Rainbow Car Wash at 1600 East Broadway," says Victor Quintana of the Lubbock Police Dept.
He says the victim Larry Jerome Isaac was talking with friends when he was confronted by 30-year-old Terrance Rhone. Police say Rhone threatened Isaac, then pulled out a gun shooting the 29-year-old. "Officers arrived, found the victim had been shot once in the back of the head," explains Quintana.
Rhone then fled the scene in a tan four-door Lincoln LS with temporary tags. Around 5:30 p.m. Thursday afternoon that same vehicle was spotted on the Slaton highway, marking the starting point of a high-speed chase. Lubbock Police, DPS and the Texas Rangers followed the wanted vehicle in and out of the city for an hour until it was able to escape from their sight.
Finally just after 6:30 p.m. Rone turned himself in at the Lubbock Police Department. Rhone will be arraigned Friday morning on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
