Investigators say Trevino and Garcia, along with several other individuals, were taking part in an illegal gun sale of stolen firearms. Investigators believe a fight broke out during the transaction and multiple gunshots were fired. The suspects ran from the scene.
On Thursday, July 28, the Lubbock Police Department and the Texas Anti-Gang Center attempted a traffic stop near Broadway and Ave. Q just before 3:30 p.m. The vehicle led law enforcement on a chase and was forcibly stopped near the Marsha Sharp and Ave Q.
All six suspects were arrested, including Jaydee Diaz, 17, Marco Guerrero, 22, and Kendrick Duvall, 18. Police did not identify the juveniles but said two are 16-years-old and one is 15-years-old. Several illegal firearms were recovered from the vehicle.
After the chase, a 16-year-old associated with those arrested, turned himself into the police department and was charged with aggravated robbery in connection to the East 10th street shooting.
According to police, “investigators can confidently say the East 10th Street shooting is related to criminal activity stemming from hybrid-gang involvement.”
Diaz and Guerrero were arrested on drug charges. Duvall is charged with leaving the scene of an accident.
The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
