LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

One man is dead and three others were injured Sunday morning after a dispute between neighbors turned violent in the 4600 block of Fordham Street.

It happened in northwest Lubbock between two houses that are next door to one another. Homicide investigators and EMS responded just after 4 a.m. Police said that one person is in custody at this time.

UMC officials have confirmed that Israel Vasquez, 27, was taken to the hospital and later died from his injuries. No one else has been identified as of Sunday afternoon.

Police say eight to twelve people were fighting and four of those were stabbing victims.

A neighbor told us the altercation began when one of the neighbors asked the other to turn their music down. When they refused, it became physical and after a few minutes one of the neighbors called a friend for help. The witness said that one of the neighbors involved in the brawl has had the police called on them frequently because of disputes with other neighbors.

A second neighbor we spoke with said her husband was awake all night and could hear the fight going on, but said she hasn't had any real problems with her neighbors.

Detectives surveyed the scene Sunday, taking pictures of broken beer bottles, shattered terra cotta pots, chairs that were lying in the street and even a discarded shoe.

Police have not yet released the names of the people who were sent to the hospital. They say the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Corporal Freeman in Persons Crimes 775-2414.
