Women's Protective Services Warns Of Red Flags When It Comes To Domestic Violence

LUBBOCK, TX - Officials confirmed on Tuesday that a man died after a shooting early Monday morning in South Lubbock.  
Police were called at 2:48 a.m. to the 3200 block of 110th Street for what was later described as an “attempted murder/suicide.” 
On Tuesday, police identified the male who died as 25-year-old Bo Cowling.
University Medical Center said 25-year-old Brittney Webb is recovering.
While Women's Protective Services of Lubbock was not involved in this case, they said that when it comes to domestic disputes, there are usually warning signs before.
"Research shows that if something were to happen, we know 99 percent of the time verbal abuse or something else has happened or occurred before," Steven Garcia, coordinator of regional outreach & legal services, said. 
He said red flags include a partner making you isolate yourself from friends and family, any type of verbal or emotional abuse, and obsession. 
"It's not just a woman's problem. It's a people problem because most of our abusers are men," Garcia said.
