SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE)- New Mexico State Police have cancelled the search for a car they say was involved in a shooting outside the Governor’s Mansion in Santa Fe last week as they have located the vehicle.
NMSP stated in a news release that the incident happened Wednesday, December 11 around noon when they were called to investigate a shooting incident near 1 Mansion Drive. NMSP reports that agents discovered through surveillance video that a gray four-door Nissan passenger car was seen speeding east on Mansion Drive and Governor Dempsey Drive.
The vehicle reportedly shot at another vehicle that was parked at the front gate of the residence. The gray Nissan has a damaged hood that is tied down with a rope, a black front bumper, and a turquoise New Mexico license plate.
The top of the car and the trunk are light gray. A spokesperson with the Governor’s Office, Tripp Stelnicki tells the Albuquerque Journal that no injuries were reported and that he understands that investigators believe the shooting could have been intended vandalism.
