LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - The Lubbock Police Department is investigating a bar fight in southwest Lubbock that left one person dead.

Police say the victim was 28-year-old Timothy Bailey.

They were called around 11:54 p.m. Tuesday to the parking lot of Chips Sports Bar in the 5100 block of 69th Street. That is where they found Bailey shot multiple times.

He was taken to Covenant health by emergency responders, according to LPD. That is where he was later pronounced dead.

A preliminary investigation found the incident started with an argument inside the bar between Bailey and a group of others. They were asked to leave the bar, and went into the parking lot.

Police say this is an isolated incident and there is no current threat to the public.

Police are aware of multiple suspect identifications made on social media, but they say these are incorrect. Investigators have identified the shooter and the investigation is ongoing as of Wednesday night.
