Lubbock police investigate Central Lubbock homicide

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) Police detectives continue to investigate the death of a 49-year-old man who was found unresponsive in his Central Lubbock home Monday afternoon. 

Investigators say Lee Beck suffered at least one gun shot wound and lacerations. He was found alive, but unresponsive, around 4 p.m. Monday inside the house in the 3200 block of 67th Street. EMS transported Beck to University Medical Center, where he died. 

"We're not ruling out suicide; that's a distinct possibility. Again, it's very preliminary, detectives are still working on it right now. Nobody's in custody, nobody's a suspect, a person of interest, or anything of that nature," said Captain Greg Stevens of the Lubbock Police Department.

Detectives are looking at any surrounding circumstances that could have contributed to Beck's death. Neighbors say Beck was always talkative, funny and had a colorful personality. They also say he had recently lost his business. "Everyone that I talked to had the same reaction, they were just shocked, and we're just hoping we can find out what exactly happened," said Beck's neighbor Angela Brown.

Police hope an autopsy will give them a clearer picture of how Beck died and whether or not his death was a homicide. For Your Cell Phone
