3 Roswell Officers, Man Shot In Domestic Dispute

Three Roswell police officers were wounded early Monday when a man opened fire as police responded to a domestic dispute, and the man was hit as the officers returned fire.

Police later found two other people dead inside the home in the southeastern New Mexico city.

No names have been released.

Roswell police spokesman Travis Holley says the officers’ wounds were “somewhat superficial” and all three are expected to make a full recovery.

The man was flown to University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque for treatment. Holley says state police have him in custody at the hospital.

His condition was not immediately known.
