Reported shooting remains mystery as Lubbock police find blood spot, no victims or suspects

A reported shooting supposedly involving three people late Wednesday in Central Lubbock remained a mystery on Thursday for Lubbock police.

 

At about 8:55 p.m., police were called to the area of 28th Street and Avenue Q after receiving reports of a possible shooting, according to Lubbock police spokeswoman Tiffany Pelt.

“Officers responded to the scene,” she said, “but they did not locate any suspects or victims.”

While at the site, Pelt said, officers located what could possibly be a small crime scene.

According to an initial A-J Media report, officers on site confirmed a blood spot was located on the ground in the area.

After nearly four hours of searching for evidence and questioning area residents and bystanders, officers contacted local emergency rooms but no victims from this case were located.

During the investigation, Pelt said, multiple people claimed to have heard a “loud noise that sounded like a gunshot.”

The LPD Investigation Services Bureau will continue the investigation to determine if an assault of any type occurred.

Police urge anyone with information in this case to call Crime Line at 741-1000.

Callers may remain anonymous.
