Police are investigating an overnight shooting in Southwest Lubbock that left one person dead. It happened around 2:30 Monday morning at a home in the 4400 block of 59th street.
23-year-old Ronald McNabb was gunned down by the homeowner after McNabb forced his way into the house.
Police say a man living in the house came out of his bedroom and witnessed someone assaulting his friend. He went into his room, grabbed a gun, and shot the suspect at least two times in the chest. He also accidentally shot his friend in the calf. The suspect that was shot in the chest was taken to UMC where he later died. The other victim is in satisfactory condition.
Witnesses told police that McNabb may have been after the homeowner, since he was the ex-boyfriend of his girlfriend.
Police say the homeowner was not arrested for the shooting. They believe it was a situation of self-defense.
