At about 7:30 this morning (August 22), officers responded to the Walmart at 1911 Marsha Sharp Freeway where a man armed with a baseball bat and a large knife attacked an employee.

The officers found the suspect outside the store and confronted him. They ordered him to drop the weapons, but he refused. An officer fired “less-lethal” munitions at the suspect from an LPD issued 12-guage shotgun attempting to incapacitate the suspect. Another officer also attempted to deploy a Taser against the suspect. Finally, the suspect fell to the ground and dropped the weapons before deadly force had to be used, and he was taken into custody. One of the “less-lethal” munitions inadvertently struck the suspect in the head causing an apparent serious injury to one of the suspect’s eyes. He was transported to UMC where he is currently being treated. 

This incident was captured on LPD incar videos, and Assistant Chief Stevens will release those during a press conference along with more information in the LPD media room at 3:15pm.

Investigation is on-going.

The Lubbock Police Department has identified the arrestee as Martin Salazar Hernandez, age 50.
