One Man Dead, Another Suffers Stab Wounds

One man is dead and another is in guarded condition after a fight last night involving fireworks.

Just after ten last night on the 100 block of Barton, a 21-year-old man stabbed 25-year-old Kevin Wayne Lybrand several times in the upper body. Lybrand was declared dead at Northwest Texas Hospital.

The man also stabbed 26-year-old Bobby Hart once in the stomach.

Hart was taken to the hospital for surgery. Officers say the 21-year-old man and his friends were shooting fireworks towards a house across the street.

A neighbor asked the group to stop and a fight broke out. A second fight started when Lybrand, Hart, and two friends confronted the man and his brother.

That is when the stabbing began.

The 21-year-old was taken into custody and questioned by the Special Crimes Unit and later released.

Neighbor Lyndi Murphy says, "That's scary I hope he doesn't come back and try to hurt anybody especially my neighbors and his kids and stuff."

The knife used in this homicide has been recovered.

The Potter-Randall Special Crimes unit is still investigating.
