CHAPARRAL, New Mexico- A friend of the man shot and killed this weekend has identified him as Brian Humble. The Sheriff's Office has not yet released his name.
A neighbor says Humble was in his late 50s and lived at the 100 block of Iron Horse.
Deputies were called out to the area regarding loud noise, and shots fired. During a second call, the Doña Ana County Sheriff's Office says the suspect fired at a deputy around 6:10 a.m. That's when the deputy returned fire, and the shooting stopped.
David Garcia told ABC-7 that Humble's wife, Lorrie, helped out at his charitable organization Chaparral Parents in Action.
“Me and my wife are heartbroken. We are very sad for what Lorrie must be going through right now,” said Garcia.
Garcia told ABC-7 he was upset with himself after just now recognizing signs that Humble was possibly experiencing mental episodes.
