East Lubbock shooting started with altercation at funeral

Shots fired after funeral

LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Officials with the Lubbock Police Department say one person has moderate injuries after a shooting in east Lubbock on Friday afternoon.

Police got the shots fired call around 1 p.m.

Police records say the shooting actually started with an altercation at a funeral.

One of the victims told police the two men were half-brothers "that she had just met."

Police say the victims were traveling in the 200 block of north Zenith after attending the funeral on East Fordham near Estacado High School.

They saw the two suspects driving toward them and flagged them down to talk about what happened at the funeral.

Instead, the two men drove up behind them in the 100 block of North Zenith and the victims heard a gunshot coming from the vehicle.

The victim said she fled south toward Parkway Drive before turning and fleeing westbound.

There was no damage to the victims or their vehicle, but police say the shots struck another person in another vehicle.

One person was taken to the hospital in an ambulance from the parking lot of MLK Bingo at the corner of MLK Blvd. and Parkway Dr.
