Three people are hospitalized and one person is behind bars after a string of shootings in Lubbock overnight.
The first shooting happened around 10:30 in NE Lubbock at 2641 Church Street in East Lubbock County. Police say 62-year-old Alvin Morriel shot Kentell Timmons and Carl Nash with a nine millimeter gun during an argument. Nash is in critical condition at University Medical Center. Timmons was treated and released.
Thirty minutes later, Morriel allegedly shot his wife, Brenda, in the knee with a rifle at their home in the 1900 Block of 61st Street. He then left the house as she crawled to their porch and yelled for help. Brenda is now listed in satisfactory condition.
Shortly after that, Morriel went to his ex-wife's home in the 2700 Block of East 2nd Street. There, police say he fired several rounds. One hit Andre Bluitt in the stomach. Bluitt is now in serious condition at UMC.
Police later arrested Morriel at his home. He is charged with five counts of aggravated assault.
