Big Spring Police Searching For Shooter Following Parking Dispute

BIG SPRING - A little after 4 p.m. Thursday afternoon Big Spring Police were called out to the 1500 block of Sycamore Street for a shots fired call. 


Officials say many of the homes on the block have shared driveways.


We're told the problem started because of a parking dispute between neighbors. Sergeant Tony Everett with the Big Spring Police Department tells NewsWest 9 that this parking dispute quickly escalated to gunfire.  

"They got into an argument and that escalated into a fist fight. At that point, one subject pulled a gun and shot the other one," Big Spring Police Sergeant, Tony Everett, said.

When police got there, they found that 40-year-old Nathan Robinson had been shot in the leg.

Sergeant Everett said it could have been much worse.

"The suspect told the victim, get in the house or I'll shoot you in the head," Everett said.

Before police got to the scene, the suspect took off and there has been no sign of him.

"We haven't located him. Once he fled the scene, he hasn't been seen since," Everett said.

Because the suspect was a neighbor, Everett believes an arrest will be made soon.

"We're still talking to witnesses. Mostly reluctant to talk. But we'll get all the details ironed out, obtain a warrant and get the suspect in custody," Everett said.

Police tell NewsWest 9, the victim is still in the hospital in good condition.
