Two people connected to a fatal shooting in Littlefield have turned themselves into Littlefield authorities. We're told 21-year-old Roman Eli Padilla and his 22-year-old brother, Matthew Padilla, turned themselves into DPS authorities early Friday afternoon.

Roman is in the Lamb County Jail charged with murder, but authorities are not releasing any information about Matthew's involvement. Littlefield Police say Roman Padilla shot and killed 19-year-old George Diego Sullivan.

Police Chief Abel Cantu tells us, there was a get-together at a house in the 100 block of North Austin late Thursday night when a fight broke out between Padilla and another man. Padilla left the house, but allegedly returned with a gun and shot the teen.

Sullivan was taken to a Lubbock hospital where he died early Friday morning. It is unknown if Sullivan was actually the target of the shooting, but investigators say he was not the man Padilla had been fighting with.
