Thompson was wanted since Aug. 2020, when he violated his probation and absconded from his last known Texarkana address. Since then, Thompson was implicated as a suspect in multiple shootings, including a fatal one on Jan. 12, 2021, in Texarkana. He was wanted for murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm, battery, stalking/intimidation and a probation violation.

DPS investigators work with local law enforcement agencies to select fugitives for the Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders lists. You can find the current lists — with photos — on the DPS website.

Do not attempt to apprehend these fugitives; they are considered armed and dangerous.
