OTERO COUNTY, N.M. (KRQE) – The man suspected of shooting a worker at a store in southeast New Mexico will stay behind bars through his trial.

Court records alleged surveillance video captured Sanders walking in and out of the store several times before pulling a gun on the employee.

It also claimed Sanders attempted to hide his truck and a bloody shirt and remove the used casings from the gun.

The State argued that, although Sanders does not have a significant criminal history, the random nature of the shooting makes him a danger to the public.

Sanders is facing a first-degree murder charge. His next court date has yet to be scheduled.
