Lubbock Police Investigating Shooting on 28th Street That Targeted Multiple People
Lubbock Police are investigating a reported shooting that targeted multiple people Wednesday (July 24) morning in Central Lubbock.
At about 3:30 a.m., officers with the LPD responded to the 2000 block of 28th Street and found 20 shell casings at the intersection of Avenue T.
Investigators believe there was an altercation between two groups of people that led to the shooting, based on multiple witness accounts and interviews with the alleged targets of the shooting.
Four people at the scene of the shooting said they became targets after multiple suspects approached them and agreed to a fight without firearms. It's reported that at some point in the fight, guns were retrieved by the suspects and then used to fire multiple rounds.
Police say the suspects then left the scene. There were seven bullet holes discovered in a nearby Chevy Cobalt, and two bullet holes in a Ford Taurus. There were no reported injuries connected to the shooting.
A potential suspect’s vehicle was abandoned near 50th Street and Avenue Q with 9mm rounds and two shotgun shells still inside. At this time, no suspects have been named.
