Routine Traffic Stop By Lubbock Police Leads To Foot Chase

Three people were injured following a police pursuit in Central Lubbock Thursday afternoon.

Police say it began around 3 o'clock with a routine traffic stop at 38th and Avenue V. The suspect refused to pull over and that is when the chase began.

The man ran several stop signs in an attempt to run from police before crashing into another motorist at 38th and Flint. That's when the suspect took off on foot. Officers caught up with him at 39th and Gary and took him into custody.

The suspect and the other motorist both suffered moderate injuries. The officer was injured in the foot chase.

A search of the suspect's vehicle revealed a black handgun hidden under the seat. Right now, all three are receiving treatment for their injuries. Charges against the suspect are pending.
