Lubbock Police Surround Central Lubbock Home Following Report, Arrest Man for Outstanding Warrants
One man is in police custody after being arrested for outstanding warrants, yet those are not the reason why the police originally arrived at his house.
Lubbock police received a report that a man was firing an assault rifle at the ground in the 3000 block of Avenue U this morning, then forced his way into the nearby home.
Police arrived at the home expecting a hostage situation. The man and his girlfriend had stepped outside of the house not knowing of the call, to see over a dozen police officers surrounding the home.
Upon further investigation, it seems as though the man had fired a paintball gun at the ground, and then went back inside.
The man was taken into custody for outstanding warrants, but no charges will be filed for this morning’s incident.
