LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Isaias Rodriguez, 34, died from his injuries after a shooting that happened in the 2500 block of Amherst on Wednesday morning.
At approximately 11 a.m. on Nov. 29, Lubbock Police received calls of gunshots fired in the area of 2500 Amherst Street. Officers located 34-year-old Isaias Rodriguez lying in the street with a gunshot wound. He was transported to University Medical Center with serious injuries where he later died.
Just moments after arriving on the scene, officers were able to locate two possible suspects. Both individuals were taken to the Lubbock Police Department to be questioned. One of the individuals was released after questioning. The other, 19-year-old Daniel Rangel, was arrested, and initially charged with aggravated assault.
