Central Lubbock Shooting

Police are looking for a person of interest, Terrence Essex. At this time, police are not calling him a suspect saying or if they're looking for more than one person. But in addition to that name, police also gave a suspect description.

Right now police are looking for:

  • A black man
  • Around 200 pounds
  • Near six feet tall
  • He was last seen wearing a white muscle shirt and blue jeans
  • He is believed to be armed and dangerous

Around 3 p.m. Monday two boys were bouncing a basketball in this driveway when a bullet came through the window. The boys ran to 43rd Street and that's where the 17-year-old victim collapsed.

Police drew their guns in searching for the suspect in this shooting. EMS arrived and took the 17-year-old victim to UMC. That's where he remains with life threatening injuries to his abdomen, and he is in surgery at this hour.

Residents in this neighborhood are fearful.

"Well, when you get as old as I am, and as old as these other people, are it makes us wonder what it's turning too," said one resident.

If you know the whereabouts of the suspect or person of interest you're urged to call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
