ROSWELL, N.M. – Police in the rural New Mexico town of Roswell have identified three people killed in a weekend shooting that also left a fourth victim wounded.
Few other details of the shooting have been released, including whether the victims knew the shooter or if authorities are searching for suspects.
Police spokesman Todd Wildermuth says 31-year-old Mere Contreras, 19-year-old Damon B. Oswald-Newman and 25-year-old Shelly L. Bird were found dead Saturday at a Roswell home.
Kandice M. Holloway, the 24-year-old wounded in the shooting, remained hospitalized Monday.
All of the victims are from Roswell. Police provided no details about their relationship.
Wildermuth said Monday officers remain in the early stages of the investigation.
He says officers arrived at the home after a neighbor called 911 just before 8 a.m. Saturday. Investigators believe the shooting took place right before police responded.
