LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock Police say they have arrested a suspect accused of shooting seven people at the Villa Town motel, at 5401 Avenue Q.

Police say an arrest warrant for 23-year-old Adrian Castillo was served today and he was taken into custody near 73rd and Utica without incident. He is currently being questioned by detectives and will be booked into the Lubbock County Jail for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His bond has been set at $500,000.

Police were called to reports of shots fired at the motel around 11:40 Monday night. When officers arrived they found multiple gunshot victims on a second story balcony. Once police determined the suspect had fled the scene in a car and was no longer an immediate threat, they began to provide first aid to the victims. 

Person Crimes Investigators were called to the scene and questioned multiple people. Investigators say they believe the suspect was at Copper Caboose prior to the shooting. When the male suspect left the Copper Caboose, he got into a verbal altercation with a group of people standing on the second story balcony of the Villa Town motel. The altercation escalated and the suspect fired multiple shots toward the group. Authorities say the suspect drove off in a car after the shooting. 

EMS took 7 people to the hospital with injuries. As of this morning, authorities say six of the victims are still in the hospital. All injuries appear to be non life-threatening, but some are considered serious. 

Police have identified the victims as: 35-year-old Segundo Garcia Jr., 28-year-old Marissa Bengoa, 35-year-old Stephen Sasueda, 31-year-old Jacquelyn Aguillon, 28-year-old Israel Romo, 38-year-old John Ramirez, and 35-year old Manuel DeLeon. 

Investigators are still questioning witnesses and victims right now. They believe there is only one suspects who fired shots right now. They have not yet released the suspect or vehicle description.

This is still an active investigation by the Lubbock Police Department Person Crimes Section.
