Texarkana Texas police and SWAT members showed up outside a home on Babb Lane and Citation Street Thursday afternoon. Police say they are not sure if Thompson is inside of the home, but they are staying nearby just in case. Authorities have also towed a vehicle off the scene for evidence.

“Based upon that information, we obtain a search warrant for that house,” said Shawn Vaughn, the Public Information Officer for the Texarkana Texas Police Department.

“We did go in based on the fact that he’s shot people recently in the last month. He killed a guy the other day. We felt he was a high-risk search warrant there. So we utilized the SWAT team to go in. When we got in there they – he wasn’t in there. We have not been able to locate him yet.”

The fatal shooting happened around 11:35 a.m. in the 2700 block of New Boston Road. TTPD officers say they received a call about a shooting outside of Harbor Freight and when they arrived at the scene, they learned Muldrow was shot multiple times before driving his car into a Whataburger parking lot next door, and he crashed into a crepe myrtle tree in front of the restaurant.

Muldrow was rushed to Wadley Regional Medical Center but died from his injuries after he arrived.

Thompson is also wanted for shooting another man twice within a few days of each other earlier this month. Officials are offering up to $1,000 dollars for anyone who comes forward with information. If anyone knows anything, please call crime stoppers (903) 793-7867.
