18-Year-Old Shot & Killed at Late-Night 4th of July Party in Lubbock

Police crime scene

[Update] The Lubbock Police Department has identified the victim of the fatal shooting: Ezekial Gonzales.

[Original Story] Lubbock Police Department received calls at around 11:45 Tuesday night (July 4) that shots had been fired near a home on the corner of Avenue U and 48th Street. When officers arrived, they found an 18-year-old male who had been shot multiple times.
