Local News

An Altus gang member is sentenced to life in prison plus 208 years after being convicted of drive-by shootings, including at the home of a police detective. 

Late on April 18, a Jackson County jury found 29-year-old Quincy West guilty on charges of robbery, kidnapping, human trafficking, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and 9 counts of using a vehicle to discharge a weapon into an occupied dwelling. 

Authorities believe West is the mastermind and coordinated multiple drive-by shootings.

According to Altus police chief Tim Murphy, one of the victim’s homes, an Altus police detective, received damage from 30 rounds of gunfire from an assault rifle. In May of last year, West was taken into custody by the U.S. Marshalls after being on the run for a month.

West is also a Hoover Crips gang member.
