A Lubbock grand jury has indicted a suspect in connection to a deadly park shooting.

Joseph Buckley, Jr., 29, is accused of killing 23-year-old Jose Gomez at Wagner Park July 10. 

Buckley's arrest warrant reveals the two men were pushing each other and struggled over a black backpack. According to the police report, when the victim wouldn't let go, the suspect shot him and ran away with the backpack.

Investigators determined a bloody cell phone found at the crime scene belonged to Buckley, who was seen by witnesses running south on Flint Avenue.

Buckley is being held in the Lubbock County jail on a $300,000 bond.
