The Lubbock Police Department is searching for Asia Devine Jackson, 24, who is wanted for aggravated assault in connection to Saturdays shooting at Park East Apartments.

Just after 6:00 p.m. on April 27, LPD received multiple calls for shots fired at the apartment complex located near Glenna Goodacre Boulevard.

Officers arrived and located a male victim, John Scott, 19, with serious injuries. A second victim with minor to moderate injuries, Kiana Pipkins, 19, had left the area after the shooting and was found near 9th street and Avenue S. Both victims were taken to the UMC.

According to LPD, it appears there was a fight between several people at the apartment complex pool. It escalated and at some point the suspect pulled out a gun and fired multiple shots, striking the two victims.

LPD investigators and officers were able to quickly identify the suspect as Jackson, and an arrest warrant for aggravated assault was issued.

Jackson is described as a black male with dreadlocks, approximately 170 pounds and about 5-foot 10-inches tall. Jackson should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone who sees Jackson or has information on his whereabouts should call 911. People may also call Crime Line at 806-741-1000. Crime Line callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.
