A 16-year-old woman is still in University Medical Center with serious injuries that do not appear to be life-threatening after a drive-by shooting near 37th Street and Avenue U Tuesday night.

Initial information gathered by investigators have led police to believe a male suspect fired multiple shots out of a car towards a group of people standing near a house in the 1900 block of 37th Street, according to a Lubbock Police Department news release. The car then fled from the scene after shooting at the group.

People in the area then put the young woman, who police have not given the identity of, into another vehicle and drove with her until they were able to flag down an ambulance.

It was not until around 11:30 p.m. officers found the vehicle near the 1700 block of Parkway Drive in east Lubbock. Detectives have been able to determine the shooting was the result of an ongoing dispute between multiple parties.

LPD along with the newly established Anti-Gang Center are looking into this situation.

Anyone with information into this shooting is asked to call Crime Line at 806-741-1000, and any caller does reserve the option to remain anonymous and is eligible for a cash reward.

KCBD NewsChannel 11 will update this story as more information becomes available.
