LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Police have released new details in the overnight shooting that led to a police chase through Lubbock Sunday. They say it was no random act. Police say all the parties knew each other.

Jorge Herrera, 28, was recovering at UMC Monday night, while three men are behind bars in connection with the crime. Julian Castaneda, 22; Antonio Enriquez, 29; and Jesus Alvarado, 22 are charged with aggravated assault, and a variety of other charges.

Police tell us Herrera invited the three suspects over to the house on the 1900 block of 71st for a party. That's when, police say, a fight ensued. Herrera asked the men to leave, and they did.

A neighbor who did not wish to be identified tells us he witnessed it all. "The kid that lives there asked the guy next door for a gun for self protection, because that guy may come back."

The three suspects did return. They came back with three handguns and started shooting.

"When they entered the residence, they began firing rounds," Lubbock Police Sgt. Jonathan Stewart said.

Police say several children were in the back room at the time. Officers arrived on the scene around 4 a.m. Stewart says witnesses led authorities to one of the suspects, Antonio Enriquez.

"About 4:45 in the morning, officers in the area of Enriquez's home observed a vehicle matching the description of a suspect vehicle in the area 1st and Flint. They tried to stop the vehicle at 1st and University, but the driver, who was identified as Julian Castaneda, refused to pull the vehicle over," Stewart said.

30 minutes later, the police chase ended at the South Loop and Quaker. Police recovered one gun in the car.

"Enriquez and Jesus Alvarado exited the vehicle and fled on foot. They were quickly taken into custody. The other three in the vehicle were taken into custody without incident," Stewart said.

Police say family members safely removed the children in the home.
