LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

33-year-old Jesus Montez is in stable condition Saturday after being taken to University Medical Center after an altercation at the Peppertree Inn Apartments.

It was around 8 p.m. Friday the Lubbock Police Department received multiple calls of gunshots in the area of 11th Street and Bangor Avenue. Upon arrival police were able to find Montez, who they believe was either shot or stabbed. He was taken to University Medical Center with serious injuries but that was later downgraded. 

LPD had to call in the Person Crime Unit with homicide investigators on scene. As of now it appears the male victim got into some type of altercation three suspects. The department is currently trying to find out more information on those suspects. 

A K-9 unit and Department of Public Safety helicopter were also called in to assist in the investigation. Police believe there were three suspects involved in this situation, they are described to be Hispanic males possibly in their mid 20s.

At the moment there is no indication as to what led to the altercation, and it may be the victim did not live at the apartment complex. Those who live around the area or know anything that can possibly give the investigators any suspect descriptions or recounts are urged to call LPD's crimeline at 806-741-1000.
