LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Emergency and police crews responded to reports of shots fired in the 7400 block of Avenue X just around 3:45 p.m. Sunday.

They found a man with a gunshot wound outside. The man mumbled just a few words to first responders before he was rushed to UMC.

He is said to be in serious but stable condition as of Sunday night.

Lubbock Police Sergeant Jason Lewis said they do not believe this shooting was a random act.

"We don't expect people to need to be worried about this happening to them if they live over here because it does appear to be something pointed towards a relationship...between him and whoever came to the door," Lewis said.

But Ginava Stander and her 13-year-old son, Christopher, who live right next to this complex, say it's hard not to be concerned.

"The kids are always out here playing basketball. Kids from over there, kids from over there…kids from across the street."

In fact, that's what Christopher was doing when he saw the shooting victim.

"He ran inside from playing basketball and said somebody got shot and they were laying in the yard outside. I freaked out I told him get in the house because I didn't know if he was still out here shooting or not," Stander said.

Clearly shaken, Stander hopes police will patrol this area at least for the next couple of weeks to keep everyone safe.

"These kids could have been outside whenever he was shooting and one of the kids could have gotten hit…that's what scares me the most."

Police ask anyone who heard arguing, gunshots or saw anything related to this shooting to please call Crime Line at 741-1000. And remember, you can remain anonymous.
