ROSWELL, NM (AP) — Authorities say they’re still investigating the reported shooting of a man at the Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge northeast of Roswell.
Chaves County Sheriff’s officials placed the refuge’s visitor center and trails on lockdown Friday afternoon after a man was found bleeding from a gunshot wound. He was transported to a hospital and authorities say he suffered injuries not considered life-threatening. The man’s name, age and hometown still weren’t available Sunday and neither was a possible motive for the shooting.
Undersheriff Charles Yslas told the Roswell Daily Record that the evidence isn’t really matching up with the stories and the victim isn’t being very cooperative.
