Las Cruces Deputy Shot Dead; Colleague Charged With Murder

By    |   Tuesday, 28 Oct 2014 08:10 PM

A Las Cruces deputy shot several times has died, and a fellow deputy has been charged with murder in his colleague's death.

Deputy Tai Chan, a warrant officer with Santa Fe County in New Mexico, is being held without bond at the Dona Ana County Detention Center.

Officials said Deputy Jeremy Martin was shot several times as he tried to flee an alcohol-fueled argument at a hotel, The Associated Press reported.

Police say the shooting happened just after midnight at Hotel Encanto, where Chan and Martin had stopped to spend the night after transporting a prisoner to Arizona.

Investigators say the deputies went to Dublin's Street Pub where they drank and got into an argument that escalated at the hotel.

As Martin tried to flee into an elevator, several rounds were fired, hitting him in the back and arms. He was pronounced dead at a Las Cruces hospital.
