West Lubbock Man Murdered - Shot Multiple Times

"As far as I know he was a good guy," said Bill Benson. Just after midnight, bill lost his neighbor. "Randy, that was his name, he didn't have any enemies as far as I knew," said Benson.

But at 12:30 on Friday morning, someone drove up to Reynaldo Valdez's house, called him over to their car, and started a nightmare. "At that time multiple shots were fired," said Lt. Victor Quintana of the Lubbock Police Department. The bullets flew everywhere. Three times in the chest, once in the right arm, once in the left thigh, twice in the back.

"She said she heard the shots," said neighbor George Bennett. He and his wife saw the aftermath of the violence. "We came out and the police cars were pulling up and the lights were on him and he wasn't moving," he said.

Witnesses have been questioned, but a description of the suspect or suspects remains unknown. We have no description of the suspects," said Quintana. Authorities are on the look-out though for a mid-nineties silver Chevy Caprice with spinner wheels.

Friday afternoon the Valdez household sat empty. Halloween decorations on the windows, blood stains on the lawn, rumors that someone was after him in the air. "She (Valdez's wife) said that somebody was following him," said Benson.

Police are encouraging the public to call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000 if they have any information.
