LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Officers with the Lubbock Police Department were called to the 5400 block of Ave. D after reports of shots fired around 12:30 p.m. Thursday.

After questioning people around the neighborhood officers were able to determine three to four juvenile Hispanic males shot at a car that was leaving the area, according to an LPD news release. Those driving the car abandoned the vehicle and fled the scene, along with the suspects.

The vehicle was abandoned on Avenue D with three bullet holes near the trunk. Investigators have also made contact with the vehicle owner and that person is currently being questioned. 

One of the shots fired also hit a nearby house at least twice.

Neighbors were outside at the time of the shooting and saw two males running down the street into a nearby alley. 

"I was sitting on my front porch and I heard about eight to 10 gunshots and it sounded like gas breaking at the end," Amanda Galan, local resident, said. "I told my husband there was gunshots and he came out and just as he came out, we saw two guys running this way and down the alley and it looked like one in a white shirt was holding a gun."

Galan said this is normally a quiet neighborhood where kids are often outside playing. 

"It's a very quiet neighborhood, you don't usually hear anything, so when I heard gunshots, it was kind of scary a little bit because you don't hear that here, it's a very quiet neighborhood," Galan said.

Officers are currently searching for the three to four juveniles they believe are involved and there were no injuries reported. At this time there is no description on the suspects.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Line at 806-741-1000.
