LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Police are searching for a suspect after investigators say seven people were shot while on the balcony of a West Texas motel.
Lubbock police say the gunfire happened late Monday night during an argument between an armed man and some people standing on a second-story balcony of the Villa Town Motel.
A Lubbock police statement says all of the victims suffered injuries not believed to be life-threatening. Six remained hospitalized Tuesday.
Investigators say the suspect allegedly had been at a nearby bar and restaurant prior to the shootings. Police say the man got into a verbal altercation with the victims. Police didn't immediately say what prompted the argument.
Investigators say the suspect fled following the shootings.
