LUBBOCK, Texas — New information was provided late Friday afternoon after the arrest of two people related to a shooting during a bar fight in Lubbock. A total of four arrests were made but officials were specific about two of them.

The Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office said Joe Arredondo, 33, and Rico Aguilar, 28, were arrested after a chase. The chase began after a shots-fired call in Lubbock just after midnight.

Lubbock Police earlier in the day said a fight broke out at CC’s Bar and Grill. Once management threw people out, four people got into a car and went to the other side of the building. That’s when someone in the car fired four shots, LPD said.

Ruben Sandoval, 34, was shot, but his injuries were not life-threatening, police said. He was taken to University Medical Center.

The vehicle led officers on a chase which ended with two people getting arrested.

Arredondo was charged with evading. Aguilar was held on a previous arrest warrant.
