Suspect Shot 11 Times and Killed by Lubbock Police Officer

A man has been shot 11 times and killed by a Lubbock Police officer.

On Monday, August 25, police responded to calls of a domestic dispute at a house on the 2800 block of Cornell at around 7 p.m. The female caller filed a report of abuse against her ex-boyfriend who was not at the location when police arrived. The caller alleged that her ex-boyfriend, 51-year-old Guadalupe Esquivel, had been threatening her with a pistol.

At around 9:30 p.m. police received, what they described as, a frantic call about a man threatening to kill a woman and her children. When officers responded to that call they found Esquivel in a crowd.

A Spokesperson for the Lubbock Police Department said the officer gave Esquivel verbal commands that he ignored and that the officer fired 11 rounds at the suspect when he reached for a weapon. It was not disclosed how many rounds actually hit Esquivel.

The officer has been placed on administrative leave and a Lubbock grand jury will review the case.
