18-Year-Old Charged with Murder

An 18-year-old remains in the Lubbock County Jail charged with Friday night's murder of another teen. Police say 16-year-old Chris Barnes and 18 year-old Alexander Baquera were arguing in the Tinseltown parking lot Friday night.

Baquera reportedly punched Barnes once in the side of the head. Barnes then fell in and out of consciousness, until about 2:30 a.m. when he and his friends ended up at the Lowe's Marketplace parking lot on 34th Street. That's when police and EMS were called.

When EMS arrived, Barnes was unconscious and not breathing. He was taken to UMC where he was pronounced dead. Baquera was arrested and has been charged with Barnes' murder.

He is being held on $500,000 bond at the Lubbock County Jail.
