Littlefield Police Search for Murder Suspect

For the first time in several years, the quiet town of Littlefield became the scene of a homicide overnight, and now Littlefield police are looking for 21-year-old Roman Eli Padilla.

A murder warrant has been issued for Padilla's arrest. Police say he shot and killed 19-year-old George Diego Sullivan. Littlefield Police Chief Abel Cantu tells us there was a get-together at a house in the 100 Block of North Austin late Thursday night when a fight broke out between Padilla and another man.

Padilla left the house, but he allegedly returned with a gun just before 1:45 a.m. and shot the teen. Sullivan was taken to a Lubbock hospital where he died just before 7:30 a.m. Friday. It is unknown if Sullivan was actually the target of the shooting, but investigators say he was not the man Padilla had been fighting with.

Again, Littlefield authorities need your help to locate 21-year-old Roman Padilla. He is 5'3" and weighs 130 pounds. Police say he has a tattoo on his left hand, arm and forearm.

If you have any information about Padilla's whereabouts, call the Littlefield Police Department at (806) 385-5161. Police say he has family that lives in Littlefield.

Detectives continue to investigate this case. So they ask anyone who may have information in this deadly shooting to give them a call.
