Lubbock Police have made three arrests related to the April 4 murders of 17-year-old Mia Altamirano and 20-year-old Michael Bean and injuring two other victims.

Early Saturday morning, police responded to a shots fired call near 49th and Ave. U. Investigators say Ricky Clardy, Jr., 20, and Malachi Gibson, 18, approached the front door of a nearby apartment and were met by the four victims at the door.

According to police, an argument broke out and Clardy fired multiple shots, striking the four victims. Investigators say Clardy and Gibson fled the scene in a suspect vehicle.

Altamirano and Bean were found by officers outside the apartment with life-threatening injuries. Two others were found with non-life-threatening injuries. All four were taken to UMC. Altamirano and Bean died at the hospital.

Clardy was previously jailed for a felony parole violation and a felony arson - a murder warrant has been added to his charges.

Gibson was arrested by Lubbock police for his suspected involvement in the murders.

Additionally, Janda-Lee Roberson was arrested for failure to report a felony and also booked into the Lubbock County Detention Center.
