Levelland Man Hospitalized After Multiple Gun Shots

18-year-old Terry "Carter" Wright was laying in a pool of his own blood, fighting for his life when Levelland police responded to a shots fired call on Highway 114.

According to Levelland Police, at least two witnesses told them they saw Wright fall out of a moving vehicle in the middle of the East bound lane of Highway 114. One of the witnesses also told police they saw an SUV driving behind the moving car. That witness believes Wright was not only shot, but he may have been run over.

"He was unconscious. He would regain consciousness and would talk a little bit and would go back out of consciousness," said Levelland Police Chief, Toney Cowan.

When Wright was able to talk, the reports shows he was able to give police the names of people who could be responsible for the shooting.

Cowan says they have been in contact with three possible suspects and hopes to have arrests by the end of the week. However, police have not found the weapon. "We have it wrote up as an attempted murder charge because we do feel like that's what they were trying to do, they wanted to kill him," said Cowan.

Wright was shot six times; in the chest and in the leg. At last report, Wright was in critical condition. Wright is from Levelland and has a 10-month-old son.
