Lubbock Officer Shoots Suspect During Foot Chase

Facebook

A man is dead after he drew a firearm at a Lubbock police officer.

The incident occurred shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday behind the Wash & Dry laundry at 49th Street and Avenue Q.

Police noticed suspicious activity and approached two men. 27 year-old Julian Begay ran from Officer Curtis Fish. Fish attempted to taze Begay unsuccessfully, and during the chase, Begay pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the officer, prompting Fish to shoot Begay.

Begay was taken to University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

The other man, 22-year-old Carlos Guevarra, was arrested for an outstanding traffic warrant.

An investigation is ongoing, but the Lubbock Police Department says that the officer acted properly in the situation.
