He was also the suspect in the Texarkana Walmart Shooting.
Police in Texarkana were looking for Larry in a shooting that happened Friday night at about 9:45 pm in the Walmart Neighborhood Market parking lot in the 3300 block of Summerhill Road.
Inside the store, Larry and the 43-year-old victim got into a verbal argument that spilled over into the parking lot and turned physical. At some time, Larry took a shot at the victim with a gun. Larry left the area right away.
The bail bondsman claimed to have followed Larry for six months and to have seen him enter campus with his girlfriend.
When they found him, he did not resist and did not have any weapons around him.
