Lubbock District Attorney Says Random Acts of Violence Rare in Lubbock

The Louisiana man suspected of killing a Lubbock resident at his Southwest Lubbock home is held on a $1 million bond.

Alonzo Lewis, 25, is charged with capital murder for the death of Don McCullough, 73.

Lubbock Police say the first time the two men met was most likely when McCullough offered Lewis a bottle of water, on Monday night. Then minutes later, Lewis returned to 8017 Vinton and allegedly attempted to steal something from the garage of McCullough's home, and attacked him.

Lubbock District Attorney Matt Powell tells NewsChannel 11 this kind of violence is not typical for the South Plains. "It's rare that you see a stranger on stranger type of homicide in Lubbock, Texas. It just doesn't happen," he says.

John Hoffman is one of McCullough's neighbors, and he says that could have been his family. "(I am) terribly frightened. We're scared for the safety of everyone, especially ourselves and our children," he says.

McCullough's death is the 9th murder in Lubbock this year.
