Lubbock Police responded Saturday evening to the 4700 block of Auburn Street for the report of a home invasion.
The initial call included a report of shots fired.
Initially, the police department front desk could not release details, including a description of injuries. Later, the desk said there was a homicide callout – which is standard procedure when someone either died or is at risk of dying.
A photojournalist at the scene captured video of a residence blocked off in crime tape. The location is inside North Loop 289 between Slide Road and Quaker Avenue.
