Abilene Man Accused of Shooting Mother Still at Large, “Armed and Dangerous”


ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – An Abilene man accused of shooting his mother in the head during an altercation on Friday is still on the run, and police say he could be armed and dangerous. 

Officers have been searching for Calvin Dunn, Jr., 21, since his mother, Rene Crosby, 42, was shot at the Abilene North Apartments on the 2400 block of N. Willis Street around 10:00 a.m. Friday morning.

Crosby sustained a gunshot wound to the head and remains hospitalized in critical condition as she continues to recover. 

Friday afternoon, police received a tip that Dunn may have been spotted on the 2000 block of Park Street, but a SWAT team searched the area and was unable to locate the suspect.

Anyone who knows where Dunn may be located is asked to call 9-1-1.

This incident was the first of three domestic violence-related shootings over the past week. 

The day after Crosby was shot, police say two roommates, Kenneth Williams, 53, and Larry White, 49, were involved in an argument over drugs which came to an end when Williams was shot and killed. White was taken into custody at the scene of the crime on the 2100 block of Jeanette Street and has been charged with 1st Degree Murder. 

Abilene’s recent rash of domestic violence-related shootings culminated in an apparent murder-suicide Wednesday morning. 

Police believe Jennifer Cunningham, 40, was ambushed as she was getting into her car at the Willow Crest Apartments on Nonesuch Road around 7:30 a.m., and the suspect accused of shooting and killing her, Christopher Hale, 45, was found deceased from what appears to be a self-inflicted wound inside his car on the 2500 block of Treadaway Blvd just over half-an-hour later.
