Lubbock police responding to a shots fired call near 50th Street and Slide Road on Saturday discovered the body of a woman. She apparently committed suicide.

According to Lubbock Online, Lubbock Police Department Sgt. T.S. Seely said that certain evidence and a note that was found has led authorities to believe the woman killed herself.

Rumors on social media Saturday night suggested that the suicide had happened inside Jake's Backroom. But based on other social media posts, the incident actually happened outside of the sports bar and the neighboring 50th Street Caboose.

The woman's name has not been released. Police are working to notify her next of kin. This story will be updated with new information as it becomes available.

If you or someone you know is in crisis, help is available. The Suicide Prevention Hotline is available 24/7 at 1-800-273-8255.
