One person was arrested in the incident, Fire Chief Michael Nolen said. Interim City Manager Tom Phelps said the incident occurred around 4.00 pm (6.00 pm ET).

The details of the victim have not been released, but a spokesman for University Medical Center in Lubbock, Texas, said three people were being treated there Monday evening and a fourth was en route. Spokesman Eric Finley said that two of the patients already at the facility about 100 miles (161 kms) southeast of Clovis were in critical condition.

"We still don't know all the details," City Commissioner Juan Garza told The Associated Press. "What we've been telling people is to keep on praying for the families affected by this tragedy."
