Man Chases Group From a Lubbock Club, Shoots & Kills Woman
A Lubbock, Texas woman was shot and killed after she and her friends were chased down from an after-hours club and shot at the morning of Saturday, September 17th.
Lubbock police were made aware of a female victim, 22-year-old Alexandria Garcia, arriving at Covenant Medical Center with a gunshot wound. This was at around 4:15 a.m. Garcia was pronounced dead shortly after officers arrived at the hospital.
Police say that Garcia and three others were at a club near 50th Street and Research Boulevard when they got into an altercation with the suspect, now identified as 31-year-old Lee McKine, Jr. It's believed that McKine began firing a gun, as surveillance footage showed him with a pistol walking around the front of the club. Another person on the footage is then seen reacting to what were likely gunshots.
KAMC News reports that Garcia and three others got into a vehicle and fled the scene. McKine and two others got into a dark Ford Mustang and fled "in an aggressive manner," according to the arrest warrant. Garcia's group was followed to the 4600 block of the Marsha Sharp Freeway, where they were shot at. The driver noticed that Garcia had been shot, so they took her to Covenant Medical Center.
McKine was arrested later that evening near the intersection of County Road 6900 and County Road 1340. He remains in the Lubbock County Detention Center for two counts of speeding, burglary of a vehicle and murder. His bond was set at $500,000.
