Man dies in fall at Lonestar Event Center
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A man is dead following an accident during a rock concert at the Lonestar Event Center at 602 E. 19th Street.
Police say Jubal Colvin, 39, of Abilene, TX was denied entry to a Volbeat concert at the Lubbock venue and was observed by private security jumping a fence and entering the premises.
As the security personnel attempted to remove Colvin, LPD say he fled on foot into a restricted area that was fenced off. Police say he then fell approximately 20 feet from the hillside and struck his head on the concrete covered ground, police say.
First responders gave Colvin CPR on the scene, but police say he died at the hospital.
Lubbock radio station FMX was promoting the Volbeat concert Monday night. According to eyewitnesses and security guards working the concert, Wes Nessman with FMX wrote on their website that Colvin "appeared to be drunk or had been drinking and was stopped at security for having a knife. At some point he got agitated and threw the knife at security and started running. He was told to stop several times by security and police. He ran past several fences and barricades before either running off the roof or attempting to jump roof to roof."
Nessman continued by stating "This was on a side of the property that is NEVER used and hasn't been used in about six years. This man was running from officials in a clearly off limits area."
Police say the death investigation is ongoing.
