Lufkin Police Respond to Another Southwood Drive Shooting
For the second time in less than a week, Lufkin Police responded to reports of gunfire in the Southwood Drive area. On Sunday afternoon, officers responded at roughly the same location. Investigators were unsure whether Sunday’s first shooting was the result of road rage, but given the details of that latest shooting, Lufkin police believe it was not.
According to a statement from the Lufkin Police Department, at around 8 p.m. Tuesday night, officers were called to the Southwood Drive area for a report of the gunfire. Once in the area, officers contacted a man in a vehicle who said someone in a dark gray Nissan Altima with black wheels shot his vehicle. During the on-scene investigation, officers noted that his rear wing appeared to have been hit by a bullet. Fortunately, he and his passenger were not injured in the incident.
The man, who lives in the area, is the same person who said he was shot near the intersection of Southwood Drive and Wildbriar Drive on Sunday afternoon. Initially, officers were unsure whether this incident was motivated by road rage or something else. In light of last night’s incident, officers now believe the incident was not related to road rage and was not a random act. Investigators also don’t believe last night’s incident was a random act.
The incident is still under investigation and anyone with information is asked to call the Department at 936-633-0356 or Crime Stoppers at 936-639-TIPS. Crime Stoppers callers can remain anonymous if they wish.
