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.

Just before midnight, Lubbock Police provided the following statement:

At approximately 8:40 p.m., the Lubbock Police Department received reports that a home invasion had just occurred in the 4700 block of Auburn Street. Officers arrived on scene and located a male victim with a gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital with life threatening injuries.

Detectives with the Metropolitan Special Crimes Unit are currently investigating the incident.
