Police have suspects but no arrests in Sunday stabbing

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Police are continuing the investigation into what led to a deadly stabbing in the 2600 block of Fordham Street Sunday. At this time, police say they have suspects but are not naming them. They have not made any arrests in the case.

"I think we know all the involved parties but just due to the number of people that were involved, we're just trying to know what everybody's exact involvement is," said Sgt. Jason Lewis with the Lubbock Police Department.

"There were 8 to 12 people that came outside. It sounds like maybe they had been partying all night and decided they were going to duke it out in the middle of the two residences."

Police initially showed up to the house to respond to what they called a "simple disturbance" but as they were driving away, the situation got out of control. In total, four people were sent to the hospital with injuries, including 27-year-old Israel Vasquez, who later died at UMC.

Roy Montez has been released from the hospital and Rigo Montez, Jr. has been upgraded to satisfactory condition as of Monday afternoon.

"It was a very large crime scene. We found weapons in other yards and backyards and by the time you collect the blood from those and collect the evidence itself it's very time consuming," said Sgt. Lewis.

Sgt. Lewis expects the investigation to continue a few more days as crews move beyond physical evidence and into the next stage of the case.

"We are investigating all the statements that were given by all the individuals involved. It seems like everybody was injured in some way, shape or form so it was a pretty big fight," he said.

"I think it just is probably a matter of people being up all night partying and things just escalating. Just one thing leading to another; one poor decision leading to another."

So far, no arrests have been made and the police department is asking for your help. If you know anyone involved or have any information you are asked to please call Corporal Freeman in Persons Crimes at (806) 775-2414.
