Teen caught in crossfire at E. Lubbock shooting

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Police are still searching for a suspect after a Lubbock teen was caught in the crossfire of a shooting incident Monday night. The suspect is described as a black male, 5'10, approximately 125 pounds.

Police say the shooting occurred just after 7 p.m. at Butler Park at E. 4th Street and Zenith Avenue.

Neighbors say there were two groups of 6 men in an alley between the park and a row of houses and that they heard around 5 or 6 gunshots.

A woman who lives nearby says one of the stray bullets went through her home and grazed her 17-year-old friend who was in the kitchen.  She did not want her name released but the homeowner agreed to tell us about what she called a terrifying night.

"I heard the shooting, and we didn't know what happened. We thought it might have been fire crackers. The next thing I know my company was in the house crying that she had been hit, and we realized it was a bullet that came through the wall and hit her in the back. We are glad that it was just a minor injury and we feel very blessed and thank the lord that everyone's ok," she said, still shaken up.

EMS checked the teen but determined her injuries were minor. She did not go to the hospital.

No arrests have been made as of Tuesday morning.
