A Lubbock gun shop is closed temporarily, following a fatal dispute between co-workers.
Ricky Lee Parrish, 48, is now charged with the murder of Wayne Knox, 66. Both men were employees of Fred's Gun Emporium in the 3000 block of Slide Road.
NewsChannel 11 has learned that Knox lived in Wolfforth, and Parrish is a Shallowater resident.
Police tell us that Parrish was conducting a concealed handgun class at the time of the incident. Witnesses told police that the two men were fighting around 5:45 p.m. Thursday, when Parrish allegedly stabbed Knox in the stomach with a pocket knife. It happened as both men were in an "employees only" area of the building. EMS rushed Knox to University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Jailers booked Parrish into the Lubbock County Jail just before 9 a.m. Friday.
Investigators have not yet released what the argument was about.
