CLOVIS, N.M. (KRQE) – The Clovis Police Department is investigating a shooting that left one man dead on Friday morning, August 4. Police say officers were sent to a home on Dawn Loop just before 10 a.m. after a call of a break-in. The caller told police that a male had broken in, and when officers arrived, they found a male who had been shot and killed.
