LPD:

Lubbock Police Department Persons Crimes Investigators, LPD SWAT officers and Texas Anti-Gang (TAG) investigators executed a search warrant at a home in the 1900 block of 37th Street. While officers were searching the home, they located Jelani Ashley who has an outstanding warrant for aggravated robbery in connection to the Coyote Moon Game Room robbery.

Ashely ran from officers on scene. After a short foot pursuit, Ashley was taken into custody.


Lubbock Police Department detectives need help finding Jelani Ashley, 20, in connection to the aggravated robbery at Coyote Moon Game Room yesterday morning. 

Through the investigation, detectives were able to identify Ashley as the second suspect and an arrest warrant for aggravated robbery was secured Monday. 

Detectives believe Ashley was carrying a firearm at the time of the robbery and should be considered armed and dangerous. 

Police describe Ashley as a black male weighing approximately 210 pounds and about 6’01” in height.

Investigators also secured an arrest warrant for aggravated robbery for Isaac Knighten who also goes by the name Isaac Jackson. The warrant was served last night at the hospital where Knighten remains in critical condition.   

If anyone has any information on Ashley's whereabouts, please call Crime Line at (806)741-1000. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.


Two Lubbock Police officers are on administrative leave after shooting and wounding a suspect who is seen in body cam video (image attached) armed with a gun. This happened early Monday morning at the Coyote Moon Game Room near 40th Street and Avenue A.

Assistant Chief Jon Caspell says officers were responding to what they thought was a robbery that had already been pulled. He says an officer walked up to the door and met Isaac Jackson, 20, who was armed.

Caspell says the officer retreated. As the door was closing, body cam video reportedly shows Jackson raising his gun toward the officer. The suspect ran from one door to another and reportedly slammed the door into a back-up officer trying to get out. That's when officers shot Jackson multiple times.

Officers took the gun from Jackson, called back-up and EMS and pulled Jackson behind cover to start applying first aid. He's in custody at the hospital with critical injuries.

Investigators say the gun Jackson had was reported stolen in 2014. Police also say there's a second suspect, who got away while they were engaging Jackson.

No other information has been released other than that suspect is considered armed and dangerous. If you know anyone else involved in this robbery, call CrimeLine at 806.741.1000. All tiptsters remain anonymous.

There are administrative and criminal investigations in this use of lethal force, as per department procedure. The administrative review takes policies and procedures into consideration to see whether the officers' actions were by the book. Caspell says reviewers can forward their findings to a grand jury for its deliberation. The officers have not been publicly identified.
