Lubbock police are investigating a dispute that turned into an attempted murder/suicide at an east Lubbock motel Sunday night.
Officers were called to the Budget Motel at East 34th Street and I-27 around 10:30 p.m.
They say Brenda Sue Caudillo and Pedro Esteban Hernandez, both 44, were having a domestic dispute inside one of the rooms. Police say this is when Hernandez shot Caudillo multiple times. They say she fled the hotel room and managed to run across the parking lot and into the front office for help.
Police say Hernandez then turned the gun on himself. He was dead by the time EMS arrived on the scene.
A person on the scene said Caudillo was shot twice in the head and once in the stomach. She was transported to UMC where she remains in critical condition.
