Woman hit by bullet at game

LAS CRUCES — A woman attending the UNM-NMSU football game Saturday night at Aggie Memorial Stadium was struck by a bullet fired from a small-caliber handgun, a spokesman for the NMSU Police Department said Saturday night.

The woman’s identity was not released.

The round struck the woman in the leg at approximately 8:15 p.m. inside the stadium, NMSU Police Department Deputy Chief Andy Bowen told the Daily Lobo after the game.

The woman was transported to University Medical Center in El Paso for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Bowen said police recovered the bullet that struck the woman. The bullet remained intact, which would indicate the round was fired toward the sky. Bowen added there was no gunshot heard inside the stadium and no shot came from inside the stadium.

“It would appear that it came from outside somewhere,” he said.
The woman was the only individual struck, Bowen said.
