LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Today was the first day in the trial of a Lubbock man accused of shooting and robbing someone for drugs in 2020.
During opening statements in the case against 24-year-old Luis Munoz, the state described a planned robbery that left Aaron Assiter paralyzed from the chest down after he was shot by Munoz.
Police found Assister with a gunshot wound to the neck in August 2020 after he called and reported what he described as a drug deal gone wrong.
Opening statements from the defense will come later.
If convicted, Munoz faces up to life in prison.
