Aggravated Kidnapping Leads Police On Three Hour Search For Suspect

A gunshot sparked a three hour search for a Lubbock woman. The incident all started just after 10am Thursday morning in the 1600 block of 42nd Street.

Police said Linda Garza and her sister, Anita Garcia, were at that house when Linda's boyfriend, Dearde Williams, showed up. Williams and Garza then started arguing, and that's when Anita tried to intervene. Police said Williams fired shots at her, grabbed Linda, held her at gunpoint and forced her into the car.

No one was injured during the incident, but then police spent nearly three hours trying to locate Williams and Garza. Police finally arrested 25-year-old Williams just after 1pm Thursday afternoon at 49th and Avenue L.

Williams is in the Lubbock County Jail, where he could be charged with aggravated kidnapping, aggravated assault or attempted murder charges. The victim is also safe tonight.
