This guy started shooting at the Alamo Inn, I had friends driving by on White Sands that he shot at randomly as well. In fact they were interviewed by the police to try to determine what this guy was all about,etc.
From what I was told there were originally 2 women involved.
I am thankful nobody was hurt or killed aside from this shooter.
Well done DPS

Thank you for saving the hostage. I'm glad none of the DPS folks got hurt. Looks like this guy left DPS NO choice and it sounds like DPS did an excellent job.

Dps did an outstanding job; however I must give the credit for saving the hostage and ending the situation to the Otero County deputies. They had no other choice but to shoot the hostage taker. Thank you for keeping our county safe.

A friend was very prophetic. Said the friend,"call the sheriff's department" they know how to handle things such as this. Just bad luck on thier part. They are willing and able to protect the populace. Glad no one but the shooter was hurt. Good Job!

Thank you, OCSD! Very brave, courageous work. Glad the hostage is ok, and I offer my condolences to the family of the deceased.

It will be interesting to know more of the facts, possible motives, etc, when more info comes out.

Just another male heterosexual coward with a gun. Why do we have so many more of them here? And why do male heterosexuals with guns always want to hurt women? Oh, these brave American men.

Ditto to almost everything said here. Sheriff's dept did a great job. Am curious as to motive, etc.
High Rolls Guy needs to go back in his hole and resume cowering. This was not a responsible gun owner, it was a flake.

Agreed! I'm willing to bet this guy was already a felon ILLEGALLY possessing a firearm.

Domestic Violence Commissioner Darrell Brantley denied a DV TRO in this stituation. More blood on your hands Darrell. And you wonder why I don't like you. How many have you killed now Darrell over your petty ego?
