Multiple Vehicles Damaged After Shooting in Central Lubbock Neighborhood
Lubbock Police continue their investigation into a shooting incident that left multiple vehicles and homes damaged in a Central Lubbock neighborhood.
KAMC News reports that the incident happened at 12:35 a.m. in the 1300 block of 65th Drive on Sunday, July 25th.
It's said that an officer with the Lubbock Police Department was responding to a nearby call and heard 15 to 20 shots being fired. After driving over to where the gunshots were heard, the officer found multiple people standing around in a parking lot.
That officer noted damage to a parked vehicle from what seemed to be gunfire, and shell casings were found near the vehicle. Another person on the scene confirmed that they heard gunshots while entering their home.
That same witness told officers that they saw a white pickup truck driving eastbound on 65th Drive with all exterior lights turned off. They say they saw a muzzle flash from the vehicle and the possible silhouette of a handgun. Not only that, but they say they saw around 3 men run towards Avenue P, get into a green passenger car and flee the scene.
Around 18 shell casings were found in the area, but the casings were from 3 different calibers, meaning it was possible there were multiple shooters.
No injuries were reported, and no suspects have been located.
