CLOVIS, N.M. (KRQE) – Clovis police say they’ve seen an uptick in shooting calls lately, and in many cases, people on the scene aren’t cooperating with the investigation. The department says they reported five separate shootings over the last three days, including two at the Clovis Apartments on Saturday. Surveillance video shows a large group of people standing outside at the time.

Other weekend shootings were reported on west 17th St., Fifth St., and East Plains. Police collected more than 60 shells from those scenes. They arent saying if the shootings appear to be related.
