Three men are in custody after gunshots rang out in an east Lubbock Park Wednesday afternoon.
Lubbock police say a fight got out of hand around 2:49 p.m. in the 2400 block of 6th Street, resulting in minor injuries.
Ruby Buckley lives down the street. She heard four shots. "I heard two shots, bang, bang. There was all of this commotion than I heard another, bang, bang".
One vehicle fled the scene when police arrived. Officers caught up with four suspects near 7th and Zenith. Two suspects were arrested, one was taken to University Medical Center and another ran away. Police have not yet located the fourth suspect.
Buckley saw the incident unfold in front of her house. "One dude got out of the car and ran. And the rest of 'em, they told 'em "face down on the ground".
One bag of marijuana was found in the suspects' vehicle. The LPD Gang Unit was also on scene. They are trying to determine if the fight was gang related.
A man living near the park says these fights happen on a daily basis. He wants it to stop for the safety of his family and others. "They just need to cut it out. It's summer time and the park should be a safe place for kids to play," Durand Williams said.
Three suspects, James Jamar Clark, Tony Deshan Bell and Terence Detrell Neals were all arrested and charged with marijuana possession. They have not been charged with the shooting.
