LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock police have now arrested a third person in connection with the shooting that killed a man at the Skool House Club in the 1700 block of E 4th Street around 4 a.m. Sunday.

On Tuesday, police arrested Treyci K'shon Neece, 17. Neece has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His bond has been set at $250,000.

Earlier, police named Jaquan Ward, 19 and Shaquille Cofer, 19 as suspects. Ward and Cofer were each charged with one count of murder with bond set at $500,000.

LPD says the investigation is still ongoing.

The arrest warrant says police heard 15 to 20 gunshots coming from the area around the Skool House club early Sunday morning. When they arrived, they discovered the victim, Christopher Ayers, on the ground. Ayers was taken to UMC where he was pronounced dead.

The warrant says five suspects fled on foot in different directions after the shooting.

LPD Public Information Officer Sgt. Jason Lewis explained the quick response: "We try and have officers in the area of the Skool House Club. Midnight officers were kind of in the area whenever the shots went off and they were able to respond quickly."

The Lubbock Police Department urges anyone with any information relating to this case to contact Crime Line at 741-1000.

And this isn't the first time Ward has been connected with a shooting. He was arrested back in October 2012 when three people were shot at a Marshall Street party, but this case has not gone to trial yet.
