LUBBOCK, Texas — Courtney Dobbins was found guilty of aggravated assault Thursday morning and sentenced to 27 years in prison.
Dobbins was on trial for the shooting and serious injury of Alexa Hernandez on February 13, 2019.
A police report said officers were called to the 6100 block of Avenue S. Officers found Hernandez “crying hysterically” and holding a towel over her neck.
An officer wrote in the police report, “I removed the towel and observed a gunshot wound.”
The police report said Dobbins was one of four people in the living room of a home when he “was reckless in discharging a gun.” After the shooting, Dobbins “fled the scene,” according to the police report.
Dobbins was arrested about a week later and has remained in the Lubbock County Detention Center on a $75,000 bond since that time.
The same jury that found him guilty sentenced him on Thursday afternoon.
