HOBBS, N.M. (KRQE) – New details have been revealed about a deadly police shooting in Hobbs.
Investigators say Hobbs Police Officer Rudy Hille responded to reports of a man with a gun at an Allsups last month. They found 46-year-old Roberto Mata of Carlsbad was found at the scene.
Officer Hille gave Mata several commands to drop his gun, but Mata ignored them and shot at a witness’s car, according to officials.
The officer then shot and killed Mata. No others were injured in the shooting.
