Recent Murder Discussed at East Lubbock Town Hall Meeting

Coincidentally, Lubbock councilman Floyd Price held a scheduled town hall meeting Tuesday night. One of those residents brought it to the attention of city staff that a lot of "death" has been happening East of Interstate 27. "You don't know when someone's shooting and a bullet is going through your house," said long time resident Maureen Crawford .

These concerns are the words on the street. They're concerns often told at town hall meetings. Less than 24 hours after someone was shot to death, concerned citizen's reach out to ask how a community can put the violence to an end.

Police Search for Suspect in East Lubbock Murder
Lubbock Police are searching for the person who shot and killed 20-year-old Martreon Moore. It happened around 2:30 Tuesday morning in the area of north Cherry and east Bates, just two blocks from the victim's home.

"I said 'Lord, they're shooting over here again.' Went to kitchen window, saw a man running down the sidewalk," said an eye witness. This anonymous witness called 9-1-1 Tuesday morning around 2:30 when she heard gunfire in her neighborhood of North Cherry and East Bates.

20-year-old Martreon Moore was shot and begging this woman for help. "The only thing they said was 'they shot me they shot me," said the woman. Moore was slumped in a chair on this woman's porch, bleeding. Moore died on the way to the hospital.

Moore's aunt, Modesta Clemons says Moore had just been released from a correctional facility. "He was always the type to always get in trouble," Clemons said. Clemons doesn't even live in East Lubbock, but says crime is a problem. "It's a nice area, they just need to keep the young people off the street," she said.

East Lubbock residents mentioned at Tuesday night's town hall meeting they want to work to keep those young people off the streets.

Meanwhile, police need your help to find the person who shot Martreon Moore. Call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000 if you have any information.
