Family, friends gather to remember Eagle Pointe murder victim

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Family members and friends of 32-year-old Ernest Deanthony Turman gathered at Eagle Pointe Townhomes Monday night for a candlelight vigil in his honor.

Turman was fatally shot 2 p.m. Sunday at the vacant apartment complex at 6127 Avenue R.

Lubbock police are still looking for the suspect who shot him. Police Sergeant Jason Lewis said they were told by a witness that a black man, about 5'9 and 210 pounds, was last seen in a blue shirt running from the crime scene after the shots were fired.

Turman's sister, Jessica Phillips, said her brother and this man were fighting over a woman.

She said her "baby brother" could make anyone laugh.

As she waits for more details in this investigation Phillips is collecting donations for her brother's memorial fund.

"We're going to do everything we can," she said, "so my brother can be buried the right way."

That memorial fund for Turman is set up at Wells Fargo in care of Jessica Phillips.

Police ask if you have any tips for this case to please call Crime Line at 741-1000.
