Law enforcement officials remained tight-lipped Monday morning regarding the arrest early Saturday morning of a Midland man on a charge of attempted murder.
Joshua Aaron Kirby, 28, of 1302 S. Connell in Midland, Texas, was arrested early Saturday morning in the 700 block of W. Interstate Highway 20 â€” near the TravelCenters of America Truck Stop â€” on a charge of attempted murder.
Sgt. Tony Everett, public information officer with the Big Spring Police Department, declined to comment on the arrest, citing an open investigation.
â€śThe investigation is ongoing at this time,â€ť Everett said. â€śKirby was in Big Spring with the intent to commit a criminal act. However, I can't comment further without compromising the investigation.â€ť
Everett said he expects the BSPD will release a statement on the arrest once more information has been gathered.
According to officials with the Howard County Detention Center, bond has been set for Kirby at $200,000 for the single charge of attempted murder. The Midland man remained in custody as of Monday morning, according to jail records.
