Lubbock Police Arrest Suicidal Woman After Armed Standoff
A woman was arrested in Lubbock on Tuesday (Oct. 15) after leading police on a car chase.
The Lubbock Police Department says the incident began at around 5:30 p.m. near 82nd Street and Avenue D after a woman reportedly fired a gun in the area after getting into some kind of altercation.
Emails from Lubbock Police Department Lt. Ray Mendoza to KFYO News and other media outlets referred to the suspect as suicidal and asked reporters to stay away from the area.
