That followed a federal indictment issued last week charging Pruett with being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Authorities say Pruett opened fire at three locations south of Lubbock Monday, March 13.
“I am fixing to make the headlines right now,” Pruett reportedly declared in a Facebook Live video two days earlier.
Then Pruett reportedly drove a black Audi to a convenience store and shot someone else in the arm. That shooting may have involved Pruett's auto repair job.
Codie Payne said Pruett refused to return vehicles that he provided for repairs.
A woman who says she used to date Pruett claims she tried to warn authorities about the attack.
“He said, ‘I don’t have 40 minutes to sit here and look at this video,'” the woman recalled. “I said, ‘I know you don’t, but if you could just look at tidbits of it.’”

The woman also said Pruett threatened to take her children and insulted her in front of her son. He later stole her security cameras, she added.
Pruett reportedly admitted to authorities that the woman punched him in the face.
Pruett also reportedly explained that he went on his rampage because of issues with the game room, including perceived threats from other customers.
For living up to his reported promise, Pruett is jailed on a $15 million bond.
