Police on Sunday identified a 34-year-old man who died after an overnight shooting sparked by a fight at a club near the Depot Entertainment District.

No arrests had been made following the shooting that killed Lorenzo Soto as of mid-Sunday afternoon, according to a statement from the Lubbock Police Department.

Officers responded around 1:57 a.m. Sunday to a report of shots fired in the 2200 block of Interstate 27. Upon arrival, officers located Soto with a gunshot wound. Soto was taken by ambulance to University Medical Center, where he later died.

During the initial course of the investigation, it emerged that multiple individuals were involved in a physical altercation at a nearby club, which was broken up by security personnel.

All subjects were escorted outside the club and a second confrontation ensued, which ended in a shooting near 22nd Street and Crickets Avenue – near the location of the Cowpokes club.

Police said this appears to be an isolated incident with no immediate threat to the public. Officials did not immediately identify any suspects and no arrests have been made while the investigation is ongoing.
