The word "captured" can now be place on the picture of the fourth and final suspect wanted in connection to Wednesday's drive by shooting. The latest arrest came Friday afternoon when Lubbock Sheriff's Deputies took 26-year-old Adrian Walker into custody in downtown Lubbock.
Authorities believe Walker may have been trying to make arrangements for his release. Walker went to a AAA Bail Bonds around noon Friday. That's where police caught up with him, and took him just down the block to the Lubbock County Jail.
Now police are trying to find out what led up to Wednesday's shooting. "I don't know a specific incident that set off this particular shooting," said Roy Bassett from the Lubbock Police Department.
Walker is believed to be one of four men involved in the shooting that left 21-year-old Undra Lamar Baker clinging to life at University Medical Center. Baker was shot in the head at 1610 59th Street early Wednesday.
Three other men, 24-year-old Larry Williams, 27-year-old Raymond Jefferson, and 26-year-old Steven Sanders were taken into custody Thursday. Williams was arrested on unrelated charges, Jefferson turned himself in, and police arrested Sanders late Thursday.
"Some of them certainly are being cooperative. I cannot say as for all four," said Bassett.
Bassett tells us investigators are still searching for the weapons used in Wednesday's shooting. Police are also looking to find out if other people were involved. Bassett says it's looking less likely that Tuesday's shooting at the Garden Apartments on 65th Street is related to Wednesday's shooting. He says it could just be a bad coincidence.
NewsChannel 11 has learned a resident in the area where Baker was shot has come forward with a possible motive. The witness says she saw another shooting just hours before Baker was shot. According to that witness, Baker was involved in that shooting. Police have not yet confirmed that.
