Police Search for Suspect in East Lubbock Murder
Lubbock Police are searching for the person who shot and killed 20-year-old Martreon Moore. It happened around 2:30 Tuesday morning in the area of north Cherry and east Bates, just two blocks from the victim's home.

They are looking for 21 year-old Justin Lewayne Davis. He also goes by the name "Earl". He's about 5'9", and weighs about 210 pounds. Police suspect he is in the Lubbock, Plainview or Tulia area. They also say he could be armed and dangerous.

"The exact circumstances of the murder are not entirely known. It came to our attention when Mr. Moore showed up on a porch in the neighborhood requesting assistance. The woman in the house called 9-1-1 and we sent officers and EMs to the scene," explains LPD Lieutenant Roy Bassett.

Below is an excerpt of the 9-1-1 call:

Caller: "I heard the gunshots."
Dispatcher: "Okay, you just saw that somebody ran off, but you don't have any information on the person."
Caller: "I saw this kid running up toward my house."
Dispatcher: "What can you tell me about him?"
Caller: "I don't know, he's in my chair, I think he's already dead."

The woman that called 9-1-1 didn't know Martreon Moore and didn't know where he came from. But in the last month detectives have gathered enough evidence to turn their efforts toward finding Justin Lawayne Davis of Plainview.

"Anybody who has any information about Mr. Davis's whereabouts are urged to call Crime Line however he is considered armed and dangerous so we would advise no one other that law enforcement to approach him," urges Lieutenant Bassett.

The number to call is (806) 741-1000 , all callers can remain anonymous and police are offering a $1,500 reward for information that leads to the arrest of Davis.
