What started out as a suspected shoplifting incident over the weekend turned into an aggravated assault.
Police were called around 2:00 p.m. Sunday to the Walmart at I-40 and Grand. Employees said a black man had put several items in a bag but didn't pay for them. He was taken to the loss prevention office, and once inside, started arguing.
He then pulled a small pistol and told the employees to get out of his way or he would shoot them. The man was last seen driving a light-colored Cadillac. No injuries were reported.
An 18 year old is dead after a fatal crash in southwest Amarillo.
Police say it happened Monday just before 1:00. Christopher Caleb Bell was riding his motorcycle south on Bell in the 6300 block. He hit a car that was turning onto Bell street from a private drive.
Bell died at the scene as a result of injuries received in the crash. The driver of the car was uninjured.
The incident is being investigated by the APD's Traffic Investigation Squad.
A water main break over the weekend will cause some delays and detours for the next few days.
A break in the 12-inch water main caused a sinkhole to form on 45th just west of I-27. While the main was repaired within a few hours, road repairs may take up to a week to complete.
As a result, 45th just west of the Canyon E-way is closed to east and westbound traffic. If you are driving east on 45th and want to turn north on to the E-way, you'll have to find a different route.
For daily updates on repairs, you can follow the City of Amarillo on Facebook or on Twitter @cityofamarillo.
The 2014 Big 12 Football Media Days got started Monday in Dallas with Baylor, Kansas, TCU, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech coaches and players meeting with reporters from print and electronic media outlets.
Baylor's Art Briles was first up and didn't waste any time in announcing the Bears' intentions this season. He used an analogy from baseball in saying "we're not going to try to bunt or get a single. I promise you that. We're swinging for the fence. We're very excited about 2014 without any question, because our guys have learned how to win at the highest level." The Bears finished atop the Big 12 in 2013 and will be one of the favorites again this season.
After a successful debut for Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury last season in Lubbock, the Red Raiders young leader said yesterday that being year number two makes a huge difference for everyone on the team. Tech finished 4-5 in the Big 12 but 8-5 overall in 2013 and hoping to continue the upward trend this season, behind Sophomore quarterback Davis Webb.
TCU is coming off a 2-7 season in the conference and just 4-7 overall. However, Head Coach Gary Patterson believes they can turn many of those close losses last year into victories this season. Six of TCU’s losses were by 10 or fewer points last season but the Horned Frogs will be transitioning to a more up-tempo, spread offense in 2014 under co-offensive coordinators Doug Meacham and Sonny Cumbie.
