Death – Obituary

Police on Wednesday identified a 37-year-old man who died after being shot during what investigators say began as a fight in a vehicle Tuesday in south Lubbock.

But homicide detectives hadn’t named suspects or announced arrests as they continue investigating the shooting that left Christopher Ray Garcia dead.

Lubbock police responded to a shots fired call about noon Tuesday in the 7000 block of University Avenue, according to a Lubbock police news release.

Responding officers found one person in a vehicle suffering a gunshot wound. The person was pronounced dead at the scene, Lubbock police Lt. Leath McClure said on Tuesday.

He said an initial investigation indicates the shooting stemmed from a civil dispute between two people inside the vehicle that was parked behind the Lubbock Breakfast House restaurant.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
