LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Police now know the shooting took place in 2400 block of East 8th Street.  The shooting took the life of 36-year-old Angela Holt and left 34-year-old Trent Johnson in critical condition.

But other than that there are still a lot of unanswered questions surrounding this fatal shooting.  The shooting happened just after 4:00 Thursday morning in the 2400 hundred block of east 8th street. 

Roxane Jordan lives on this street. "I heard three shots and then I looked out the window and saw the car hit that pole right there," said Jordan.   

Police say after shots were fired, the car backed into the utility pool and drove a few streets up to the 1700 block of East Cornell to get help from a friend and ended up in Carl Giddens yard.  "The police showed up the same time I was coming outside because he was making a whole lot of racket, he saying, help me I'm dying," said Giddens.   

Police say shortly thereafter Johnson collapsed. He was shot multiple times, and one was to the head. He remains in critical condition at UMC.  "The male victim is unable at this point to provide us any information so we don't have a whole lot to go on there is some physical evidence that we've been able to review and look at the crime scene as well as the vehicle," said Captain Greg Stevens with the Lubbock Police Department.   

Inside the car was Holt who was shot and killed. "It's been very difficult to positively identify her and in order to get that one percent of sureness all the way to 100%, we've had to wait on fingerprint identification evidence to come back," said Stevens. 

Police say they are still searching for answers of whether or not the victims knew the suspect, and a possible motive for the shooting.  "The investigation is wide open at this time and it's just too difficult to narrow down to anything right now because we don't want to exclude any possibilities right now," said Stevens.

Police need your help to figure out some of these unanswered questions.  They have no suspects at this time, or any descriptions. So if you know anything about this shooting, please call CrimeLine the number is 741-1000.
