A suspect remains on the run after a shooting in central Lubbock over the weekend.

Lubbock's most recent crime has authorities searching for 23-year-old Andy Lewis Medina, also known as Johnny Joaquin Rios.

Police want to question Medina in the shooting of James Randolph Scott in front of his central Lubbock home. It apparently started as a fight across the street from the South Beach Club in the Depot District early Sunday morning.

 From there, the argument continued at a nearby Town and Country gas station and police were called. The suspect allegedly followed Scott home to 3714 53rd Street and shot the 26-year-old in the head and both of his legs.

Neighbors heard the gunshots and called 9-1-1. "She started screaming and I know somebody was hurt at that point. I didn't want to go outside because I didn't know if the shooters were still here," next door neighbor Lyn Childress said.

At this point, it is not known if the suspect had a gun inside the club or retrieved it from his car, however we did ask South Beach Club about their security procedures.

South Beach tells us they pat down all male patrons and use a metal detector wand on all women. Owners, Chris and Angela Gonzales say there were no altercations on their premises Saturday night into Sunday morning and that their prayers are with James Randolph Scott and his family.

Scott remains in critical condition at UMC Monday night.

Police say two other people may be involved in the shooting. NewsChannel 11 dug into Medina's past and found he has a long list of indictments here in Lubbock for:

  • aggravated assault
  • assault on a public servant
  • evading arrest
  • unauthorized concealed weapon on alcohol premises
  • possession of marijuana

Police say Andy Medina is armed and dangerous. He is described as a Hispanic man, 5-feet-9 inches tall and weighing around 200 pounds. He was last seen driving a gold or tan newer model SUV.

If you have any information about the suspect or the shooting, you are urged to call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
