Man dies in Las Cruces mobile home park shooting

By: Stacey Welsh

LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- The Las Cruces Police Department is investigating a shooting that killed a 30-year-old man at the De La Te Manor mobile home park.

Police were called to the scene at approximately 6 p.m. Saturday. The mobile home park is in the 5300 block of Stern Drive.

Las Cruces Police Department Public Information Officer Dan Trujillo said police have a 19-year-old man in custody in connection with the incident. He said at least one gun shot was fired and the victim died at the scene.

"There were a lot of people in this trailer park... It's going to take us a long time to gather all the facts," Trujillo said.

A woman at the scene told KFOX14 that the 19-year-old in custody is her nephew and she believes the shooting was in self-defense.

No charges have been filed, and the police department said the investigation is ongoing.
