LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - A person is recovering after two suspects reportedly tried to steal money and a vehicle during a early-Friday robbery.

The Lubbock Police Department was called just before 1 a.m. to the Park Apartments in the 5700 block of 50th Street.

Authorities were told two suspects went inside a person’s apartment demanding money. The victim gave the two a small amount of cash.

After that, the suspects told the victim to call another person, who they say owed them money, according to a police report. That person, and two others arrived in the complex parking lot a short time later.

One of the suspects tried to steal the vehicle the three came in, and the victim interjected, according to police. Then, the suspect allegedly shot that victim.

Both suspects then ran from the scene.

Two of the people put the victim inside the vehicle and drove that person to an EMS station near Chicago Avenue for treatment. From there, the victim was taken to University Medical Center, where they remain with serious injuries.

Police still have not found any of the suspects. No descriptions have been given on any of the suspects.
