At around 3:50 a.m. this morning (Friday), the Lubbock Police Department received reports of a domestic disturbance and shots being fired near East 4th Street and MLK Jr. Boulevard.

Multiple officers responded to the area and found a 23-year-old male victim lying on the ground in a parking lot with what appeared to be stab wounds and other injuries. His 40-year-old mother also had what appeared to be a stab wound.

Both victims were taken by ambulance to University Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

Initial information gathered from interviews with witnesses indicate that a female got into a verbal argument with the male victim, and the fight escalated into a physical altercation.

According to statements, one female suspect hit the male in the head with a beer bottle. A second female suspect stabbed the male multiple times and stabbed his mother who tried to intervene. A third suspect then fired multiple shots into the air.

No suspects have been taken into custody at this time.

Officers with the LPD Family Crimes Unit will continue to investigate this aggravated assault. Anyone with additional information on the incident is asked to contact the Lubbock Police Department.
