20-year-old, Timothy Noble, of Texarkana, Texas was shot by a patrol officer in the 2700 block of North Robison Rd after a foot chase. According to TTPD, the suspect was carrying a pistol with a drum fed magazine loaded with several rounds of ammunition.

Noble is in stable condition at Christus St. Micheal Hospital with non-life threating injuries.

Officers say they were dispatched to the area after receiving 911 calls that a group of people was walking through Woodbridge Apartment complex wearing mask and carrying guns. Officials were told the group was headed in the direction of the area where two prior shots fired calls had been received three hours before. Officers allegedly located 20 spent shell casings in the roadway near three vehicles and two homes that had been allegedly shot several times.

According to TTPD, after receiving the 911 they located the group walking near Barkwood and Sunset Roads. When they saw the officer, the suspects ran and the officer began to chase one of them, later identified as Noble.

Officers who pursued Noble for several blocks say they witnessed him carrying a handgun and briefly lost sight of him before another officer saw him running south near Robison Road and College Drive.

According to detectives, that officer confronted Noble as he tried to hide in a ditch behind a church in the 2700 block of Robison Road. Noble subsequently produced a firearm, resulting in the officer discharging his weapon and striking Noble.

Detectives say officers immediately provided first aid to Noble prior to the arrival of paramedics. In addition to Noble’s gun, three other guns were recovered along the path that the other members of the group were last seen running.

A homeowner on Barkwood Road later called 911 to report finding the guns in his yard. Those three guns are believed to have been dropped there by the other members of the group which officers say had all previously been reported as stolen.

Warrants have been obtained charging Noble with aggravated assault on a public servant, felon in possession of a firearm, and evading detention. Once released from the hospital, he will be booked into the BI-State Jail

Detectives are working to identify the other people in the group, who along with the suspect may have also been involved in the earlier shots fired calls.

The investigation is being conducted TTPD Criminal Investigation Division, and the Texas Rangers will conduct an independent investigation into the shooting.

The department is also doing an internal investigation of the shooting to determine if it complies with departmental policies. According to the policy, the officer involved was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

The findings of the investigation will be forwarded to Bowie County District Attorney’s Office for presentation to a Grand Jury.
