LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock grand jury has indicted the man accused of shooting seven people at the Villa Town motel, at 5401 Avenue Q.

Adrian Castillo, 23, has been indicted on charges of aggravated assault - bodily injury and deadly weapon and is being held in the Lubbock County Detention Center on a $500,000 bond.

Lubbock police officers were called to reports of shots fired at the motel around 11:40 p.m. on April 3, 2017. 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 Copper Caboose, he got into an argument with a group of people standing on the second story balcony of the Villa Town motel. The argument escalated and the suspect fired multiple shots toward the group. Authorities say the suspect drove off in a car after the shooting. 

EMS took seven people to the hospital with injuries. All injuries appear were non-life-threatening. 

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.
