Only Survivor of Double Shooting at UMC

A Lubbock woman is the only survivor from Thursday nights shooting. However, she's fighting for her life at University Medical Center.

Lubbock police found 35-year-old Shelly Wilson, still alive, with several gun shot wounds. One in her face, another in her neck, and several to her legs. She was taken to UMC, where she is still listed in extremely critical condition. The hospital is not releasing any more information on whether or not her condition is improving.

We also have more information about these three people involved in last night's shooting. Apparently 27-year-old Timothy Smith and Shelly Wilson worked together at a local car dealership. The gunman, 39-year-old Brian David Wilson, was Shelly's estranged husband. According to police reports Tim smith was helping Shelly move last night, when her estranged husband arrived and opened fire.

Tim's wife was babysitting the Wilson's boy at her house as Tim was helping Shelly. Police tell us the boy is safe.

NewsChannel 11 talked with one of Tim's co-workers on Friday, who can't believe this has happened to such an up-beat and friendly person. "Some time we spent together we went hunting and that's when I got to know Tim. That's when I became his friend. He goes he lives life to the fullest," said Randy Carroll.

Other people at Tim's work said he was just trying to help out but was caught at the wrong place at the wrong time.

At this hour, Shelly Wilson continues to fight for her life at UMC.
