LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Police reports indicate a deadly shooting in central Lubbock early Thursday morning was over the sale of a gaming console. A suspect in the deadly shooting was arrested Thursday afternoon.

The events leading to the shooting started Wednesday night around 10 p.m. Police were called to the 2300 block of Glenna Goodacre Blvd. for reports of a disturbance.

The investigation revealed that 18-year-old Damion Moore and 19-year-old Jaden Brown arrived at the location to buy the gaming console from 20-year-old Jose Seguin.
