A family member is speaking out about a man involved in an area police station shooting.
The sister of 39-year-old Jeff Whitten tells us he's diagnosed with schizophrenia.
"Jeff told me that he walked into the police department with a gun and he was gonna shoot one of the officers,"says Donna Fanning. "And I don't know why but he has a lot of mental problems."
The Department of Public Safety tells us Whitten walked into the Childress police office Sunday night with a shotgun. An officer shot him in the arm when he refused to put it down. "It's puzzling why he did it because we don't know," says DPS Trooper Daniel Hawthorne.
