A Lubbock gun shop is closed, after an employee allegedly stabbed and killed another employee Thursday evening.

Ricky Lee Parrish, 48,  of Shallowater is behind bars at the Lubbock County Jail.  He's now charged with the murder of Wayne Knox, 66.

Police say a fight between the men led to the stabbing.  In his mug shot, Parrish has a large bruise on his left eye.

A message from the store owners says they are temporarily closed, and they plan to re-open on Monday.  Meanwhile, investigators have not released any new information about the fight that lead to Thursday's deadly stabbing, but NewsChannel 11 has learned more about the two people involved.

Parrish and Knox were fighting when Parrish allegedly pulled a pocket knife and stabbed Knox in the stomach.  EMS rushed Knox to University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Knox has worked in the shop for several years, and we're told he most recently lived in Wolfforth.

Witnesses inside the store tell police they saw the two men fighting, but the stabbing apparently happened in an area for "employees only".  A concealed gun class was in session at the time of the stabbing, and sources tell us that Parrish was the instructor.

Detectives tell NewsChannel 11 that they won't be able to release any information about the fight until it is presented to the district attorney's office.

NewsChannel 11 will bring you those details as soon as they are available.
