Lewisville police have confirmed that the man they think shot and killed Will Booker on June 12 is in custody.

LPD Captain Mike Lane said Dallas County assisted in the apprehension of 28-year-old Quintin F. Lowe, who is held in Dallas County Jail.

Lowe’s arrest record shows prior arrests in 2011 for trespassing in Dallas, 2012 for possession of marijuana in Dallas, and 2015 in Allen for possession of marijuana.  He received six months probation on each of the first two charges, and 6 days jail time in the last charge.

Lowe is charged with both murder and a family violence charge.  He is held in lieu of $250,000 bond on the murder charge, and $50,000 on the family violence charge.

Lane was not able to provide much detail about the arrest, but said that he had been apprehended overnight Saturday or early Sunday morning.  He said detectives were able to interview Lowe today.

The shooting happened June 12, when Booker and the suspect allegedly got into an argument at an apartment complex in the 1900 block of SH 121 Business.  Police said that Booker had kicked the door of the other man’s car and then took off on a motorcycle.  The man then chased Booker up 121, shooting at him several times and eventually striking him.  Booker crashed his motorcycle on Oakwood Lane.

After transport to Medical City Lewisville, Booker died from the gunshot wound.

Murder is a first-degree felony punishable by 5 to 99 years in prison.

    • There’s no telling just yet. Suspect descriptions often turn out to have problems.

      We will note that the photo shown in Lowe’s jail custody record appears to be the same as one that Texas DPS had for 5/22/2018, although there is no record shown for why that photo was shown. So the photo is likely from an earlier arrest or detention from before the arrest.
