WOLFFORTH — A shooting left two people dead, including the suspected shooter, and two others injured early Saturday in southwest Lubbock County, according to law enforcement.

The Lubbock County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of shots fired around 12:20 a.m. Saturday in the 9200 block of Barton Avenue. There deputies found Cynthia Green, Louis Green and Brice Green each suffering from gunshot wounds, according to a news release.

Cynthia Green died from her injuries at University Medical Center, while Brice Green, 25, was still being treated Saturday afternoon. Louis Green, 73, was treated and released.

Deputies on scene identified 49-year-old Michael Green as the suspected shooter and were told he retreated to an RV on the property. Deputies reported hearing two gunshots and contacted the LCSO SWAT team, which arrived on scene around 1 a.m.

SWAT team members were unsuccessful in communicating with Michael Green and obtained an arrest warrant for three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. SWAT entered the RV and found Green suffering from two self-inflicted gunshot wounds. EMS pronounced him dead at the scene around 6:30 a.m. Saturday.

Officials confirmed Saturday afternoon that Cynthia Green and Louis Green are the suspect's mother and father, respectively; Brice Green is the grandson of Cynthia and Louis Green and the suspect's nephew.

It was not immediately clear what led to the violence as officials continue to investigate the shooting.
