Lubbock police have arrested three people in relation to the murders of 17-year-old Mia Altamirano and 20-year-old Michael Bean on April 4th, 2020.

Officers responded to a shots fired call just before 2 a.m. in the 2100 block of 49th Street.

Police say 20-year-old Rickey Clardy Jr. and 18-year-old Malachi Gibson confronted four victims at the door of a residence. They later got into a verbal argument, and Clardy is said to have discharged multiple rounds, striking four people.

Altamirano and Michael Bean were found with life-threatening injuries and were taken to University Medical Center where they were pronounced dead. Two other juvenile victims were located with non-life-threatening injuries.

Clardy was previously incarcerated at the Lubbock County Detention Center for a felony parole violation and felony arson warrant. Gibson was taken into custody and also booked into the detention center.

Janda-Lee Roberson was also arrested for failure to report a felony.
