Armed, dangerous shooting suspect still on the run
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Police are still searching for one of two suspects described as armed and dangerous, accused of shooting and critically injuring a 15-year old last Wednesday.
Byron Parker, a 20-year-old, 6'3" 210-pound black male is still wanted. 19-year-old Demarco Lee was taken into custody on Tuesday afternoon.
In the warrant, two different Lubbock police officers describe what happened during the shooting, around 7 p.m. on Sept. 30.
Investigators were able to recover a video recorded from a cell phone that shows four black males walking down 2900 Beech around that time. Police have identified them as Byron Parker, Demarco Antwan Lee, and two other suspects.
Once the men arrive at 2912 Beech, the video shows Parker pull his shirt up and Lee pull a pistol from his waist and point it towards victims gathered at the house. Lee then lowers it by his leg.
One witness is seen running toward the house, his residence. The other, 15-year-old Shamodrick Bills, is seen walking around a vehicle parked in the driveway.
That's when Lee pulls his gun back up and begins to fire. He continues to shoot at the victims as he runs south. The two unidentified suspects follow him, and a gold GMC Yukon slows down next to all three.
Parker is no longer in the video after the shooting begins, but appears to have moved across the street; which is where Bills was found with multiple gunshot wounds.
A witness tells police the suspects live in the neighborhood. Police believe 9mm pistol bullet casings came from Lee's gun. They discovered 45mm pistol bullet casings across the street where Bills was found with critical wounds. A shotgun shell casing found in front of the residence is believed to be from a witness who lives in the house and was seen firing after the suspects.
Once Bills was out of surgery, he requested to speak with an officer. He said two people had guns and were shooting at him and his brother. Bills tried to run to the alley, he said, but was grabbed by Parker; who Bills said pointed a gun at his head and demanded his "stuff". He said Parker shot him in the leg, then three more times.
Police ask anyone with information about Parker's whereabouts to not approach him but call Crime Line at 741-1000. You do not have to give your name.
