Lubbock Car Chase Ends in Shots Fired

What started as a police chase in the city of Lubbock ended in Hockley County, but not before a DPS trooper fired shots at a suspect vehicle, hitting the driver.

As of Sunday evening, the investigation was still underway and the details on Saturday's chase were still unclear, although the male driver who initiated the chase will not be driving any time soon.

Police were unsure of why the chase started, but they do know it began Saturday night in Lubbock. When the car continued out of Lubbock on FM 179, police requested help from DPS troopers. The vehicle continued until it got stuck at 114th Street and Upland.

DPS told NewsChannel 11 as the trooper approached the car; the suspect threw his vehicle into reverse and tried to hit the trooper and his patrol unit.  The trooper then fired shots into the driver side door of the car, hitting the suspect at least once, but it did not stop the suspect.

He fled the scene and kept driving until deputies with the Hockley County Sheriff's department arrested him in Hockley County. Upon his arrest, he was immediately taken to UMC.

As of Sunday evening, no charges had been filed and authorities were unsure if the suspect sustained any injuries.
