Gang Related Shooting

Las Cruces, NM – A gang-related shooting was reported this morning according to the Dona Ana County Sheriff's Department.

At around three in the morning, several people living on the 5300 block of Desert Park Avenue heard two gun shots. The shooting was reported three hours later, when one of the residents noticed their home had been shot at.

Dona Ana County investigators believe the home was not the intended target, since the occupants are not affiliated with a gang. They do believe the shooting was gang-related.
