LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - An 18-year-old woman is recovering in a Lubbock hospital after she was shot at around 10:40 p.m. Tuesday night near the 2000th block of 17th Street.

Police were called to the scene in response to a shots fired report, according to a Lubbock Police Department news release. While officers were responding to the area, the gunshot victim called and told police dispatchers she was at a gas station at 15th Street and University Avenue.

EMS and police found the victim and she was taken to a Lubbock hospital with moderate injuries.

Investigators have found the victim was outside of her residence near 2000 17th Street when several shots were fired toward the home, according to LPD. The suspect or suspects then fled the scene.

After the victim was shot she got into a vehicle, left the area and stopped at the gas station until help arrived.

At this time officials have not been able to find a suspect in this case, but they do believe this is related to an ongoing dispute. The Lubbock Texas Anti-Gang investigators are also helping in this case.
