Lubbock Police asking for public’s help finding suspects who shot 79-year-old man early Tuesday

By Michael Cantu
LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) – Police are asking for the public’s help in finding the men who shot 79-year-old James Baker of Lubbock on Tuesday.

Baker remains in critical condition after he was shot when three men entered his house Tuesday morning in the 6500 block of Avenue Q.

Police were called to the area at 12:20 a.m. after multiple “shots fired” reports were called in, according to the Lubbock Police Department.

When police arrived, they found Baker sitting in a chair across from his house. He was “injured via gunshot wounds,” according to the police report.

After an investigation, police found three men forced their way into his home and started shooting. Though Baker was shot, he was able to get his own gun and start firing at the suspects.

There is no indication if any of the suspects were injured, but they were able to flee the scene in a silver/gray four door passenger car. No other injuries were reported from this incident.

Neighbors in the area say Baker is well liked by everyone and the children call him Pops.

LUCERNE VALLEY, Calif. (FOX 11) – A woman shot and killed an intruder inside her Lucerne Valley home overnight Tuesday, deputies said.

According to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, around 12:28 a.m., deputies from the Victor Valley Sheriff’s Station responded to a residence in the 35000 block of Harvest Moon Street in Lucerne Valley following the report of a shooting.

Inside the home, deputies located the suspect, later identified as 32-year-old Shea Manigult, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. Deputies and emergency medical personnel attempted life-saving measures; however, the suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.

The female homeowner told deputies that she was asleep in her home when she her dog started barking, waking her up. The victim entered a bedroom where she saw Manigult hiding, deputies said. The victim told deputies that she became frightened and yelled at the man, telling him he didn’t belong inside her home. The homeowner then returned to the living room and armed herself with a gun, deputies said.

Authorities said Manigult approached the victim, and, fearing for her safety, she fired once at the suspect, striking him.

Two-zero-three, Delta Whiskies and Whiskettes. Two DRT, none inconvenienced, and three in the wind. Are things picking up a bit as the end of the week is getting closer?

    My condolences to Mr Baker, and I hope he recovers soon.
    As for the three perps, I hope that they, too, are “recovered” soon.

  2. Claw says:

    The Whiz Wheel®™ did some additional research to clarify some issues on the Lucerne Valley incident before spinning. That research revealed the mort had been arrested seven times previously, had been an urban entrepreneur for nearly 20 years, and was making a simple at-home sales call when he passed from unforeseen circumstances. The spin results are:

    Shea Eoin Manigault (DRT) 23 x 3 = 69

    • Toxic Deplorable B Woodman says:

      Eoin? What-the-hell kind of a name is that? And how is it pronounced? And who cares?
      The one that gave him (RIPieces) that name should also be whacked into eternity.

  3. Ex-PH2 says:

    Mr. Baker of Lubbock has my sympathies. I hope those creatures are caught, and caught soon.

  4. Tallywhagger says:

    Twas one of those days
    A kind of a haze
    The burglar was moping around
    Then he opened a closet
    Looked inside it
    And what do you suppose he found?

    BOOM!
    Instant Karma. Gonna knock you off your feet.

  5. 5th/77th FA says:

    Two shots…two DRT… Way to go ladies! Saving cartridges, saving future potential victims, saving taxpayers room and board. That’s a trifecta in anybody’s book. Winning makes grinning.

    Get well soon Mr. Baker!
