Police were called to a home at 89th and Avenue U around 12:40 a.m. on Wednesday, July 30.

Officers found Rios stabbed in the chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say the victim is believed to have been in Lubbock for a week and was wanted for aggravated robbery in Big Spring.

According to a Facebook post by the Big Spring Howard County Crime Stoppers, Rios was wanted in connection with a June 9 aggravated Robbery of Big A Shaved Ice in Big Spring.

A police report reveals details of their involvement in the death of 18-year-old Fabian Rios.

Rios' body was found outside the home, but witness reports say that he was killed by Noel Serrano in the living room and dragged outside afterward.

When police arrived, they found him with multiple stab and gunshot wounds to the head and torso.

According to the report, a 13-year-old was inside the home and witnessed the entire incident.

Caraveo and Serrano took the minor from the home when they fled to New Mexico.

They later dropped the minor off at a family member's home in Hobbs. That's when the police were contacted.

Both suspects are charged with murder.
