Shooting at Amarillo party leaves 2 people with life threatening injuries


Early Friday morning, Amarillo police officers were dispatched to the area of SW 53 and Oregon, on multiple shots fired. The officers were directed to the apartments at 5700 Canyon drive where the shots had come from. 

At the same time, two people were taken to an area hospital with life threatening injuries, from this same incident. 

When officers arrived at the location, they discovered a large party at the apartments on Canyon Drive. Officers tried to call out the subjects with a PA, and this was unsuccessful initially. 

The Amarillo PD CIRT team was called out and responded. As Swat, Negotiators, and the bomb team were arriving, subjects began exiting the apartment. 

Once the apartment was empty, witnesses were identified, and Violent Crimes Detectives began interviewing people to attempt to identify the suspects. 

Several weapons were in the apartment where the party had occurred. 

If you have any information to assist about this incident, please call Crimestoppers at 374-4400 or Student Crimestoppers at 372-8477(TIPS). You can also download the P3 tips app.
