Teen jailed on aggravated kidnapping charge after Abilene disturbance

ABILENE, Texas - A 19-year old Abilene man is being held on an aggravated kidnapping charge in the wake of a domestic disturbance that left him shot in the neck.

Bond for Joshua Dean Noah has been set at $500,000.

The disturbance occurred after 6 p.m. Tuesday in the 1300 block of Baylor Street in the Lytle South subdivision.

Noah was injured and later arrested after he got into a physical struggle with an "adult family member" and a juvenile had taken a weapon from Noah and shot him, according to an Abilene Police Department news release.

"Fearing for the safety of the victim's family members, the juvenile shot Noah," the news release said.

Three family members, including Noah, were the only people in the home at the time of the shooting, the release said.

"The shooting culminated a series of events throughout the afternoon where Noah was alleged to have threatened the other two family members with a firearm in addition to restricting their movements and their ability to communicate with persons outside the residence," police said in the release.

Child Protective Services is assisting with the continuing investigation.

"Because this case involves a juvenile, specific information regarding ages, genders and relationships of family members has been withheld," the release said.
