Lubbock Active Jail Roster

A Lubbock man faces up to life in prison after pleading guilty to a federal firearm charge.

Jarrod Charles Gauna pleaded guilty Friday morning to one count of using, carrying, and discharging a firearm during a drug trafficking crime, stemming from his shooting and injuring a person during a drug transaction.

The 23-year-old Gauna was reportedly selling methamphetamines to another person at a Stripes location on 50th Street in Lubbock on April 20th, 2013. He was reportedly going to sell one-eighth of an ounce of methamphetamine, when the person grabbed the drugs and ran. Gauna fired at the person, and said that he possibly hit him in the foot, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Gauna and others attempted to dispose of the firearm by burying it in cement, but investigators retrieved the gun from a bucket of cement and identified it as the one in the shooting.

He faces a maximum penalty of no less than 10 years and up to life in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.
