Lubbock Police investigating assault turned homicide

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Police are investigating an aggravated assault turned homicide.  Miguel Deleon, 22, died Wednesday after being severely beaten late Sunday night.  

Police reports say officers responded to a fight in the 1900 block of 22nd Street. The report says two men and two women were assaulted by several black men.

EMS transported Deleon to University Medical Center with serious injuries. Family members tell us he died Wednesday afternoon after being removed from life support.

We talked to a friend of Deleon's who says, Miguel was a hard working man. "He was a pretty good ole guy, he wasn't troubled type. I just hated that drama went down, I just hated that," Joe Jenkins says.

So far, no one has been arrested for this.
