Two Lubbock Men Arrested After Bar Fight Turns Into a Shooting
Two men have been arrested following a shooting that happened at CC's Bar and Grill.
Just after midnight on Friday, September 24th, KAMC News reports that a fight broke out inside the bar, but management threw out everyone involved. Afterwards, it's said that four people got into a car and went to the other side of the building. That's when four shots rang out.
When Lubbock police officers arrived at the scene, they found 34-year-old Ruben Sandoval with non-life-threatening injuries. He was transported to University Medical Center.
As they arrived at the scene, officers observed a vehicle fleeing the area. A traffic stop was attempted, but it turned into a pursuit. Police said in a news release that the vehicle traveled East on 52nd Street onto I-27 to 98th Street, then back onto several other streets before finally stopping at 58th and York. All four occupants of the vehicle were taken into custody.
However, only two suspects have been identified: 33-year-old Joe Arredondo and 28-year-old Rico Aguilar. Arredondo was charged with evading arrest, while Aguilar was held on a previous warrant.
The other two suspects arrested at the scene, as well as the reason behind the fight breaking out in the first place, were not specified.
