He currently has two outstanding warrants for first-degree robbery and assault. Lampkin is considered to be armed and dangerous. If you have any information on his whereabouts, please contact the Decatur Police Department.


Fight leads to shooting

A shooting took place on Thomas Road after a fight broke out around 7:20 p.m. Thursday night. He was transported to Huntsville Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Authorities believe the man who was shot was not involved in the fight. Police have two males as suspects but at this time, no arrests have been made.
