Grand jury indicts man involved in February SWAT standoff

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A SWAT team was called to a residence in the 2800 block of 35th Street on Feb. 20, where a shooting suspect barricaded himself in a home. The man, identified as 37-year-old Lanny Sanders, has been indicted by a Lubbock County grand jury on charges of aggravated assault - bodily injury with a deadly weapon.

Police received word of a shooting at the residence around 7:45 p.m. after a victim with a gunshot wound reported the incident and gave a detailed description of the suspect.

Police went to the residence and a male matching the description of the suspect answered the door and saw police. He then ran back inside and barricaded himself in the home. SWAT was called to the scene after a shot was fired from inside the residence.

The gunshot victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries. He was able to walk to a relative's house and was then taken to the hospital by private vehicle.

The situation was resolved by 9:15 p.m. that evening.

Sanders is being held in the Lubbock County Detention Center on a $50,000 bond.

Police say the car parked in front of the home was also listed as stolen.
