BLOOMFIELD, N.M. (AP) — Authorities in Bloomfield say they’re investigating an apparent murder-suicide at a mobile home park.

Officers were dispatched to the Lee Hi Mobile Home Park around 8:15 [auth] p.m. Thursday after receiving a report of a shooting.

Police say they found 36-year-old Raphael Tena and 29-year-old Judith Barciaga-Orozco dead at the scene.

Bloomfield Police Chief Mike Kovacs says it appears that Tena shot his wife and then turned the gun on himself.

Police say couple had been married for 13 years and were involved in a recent domestic dispute.

Authorities say the couple’s two daughters— ages 11 and 6 — weren’t at the mobile home at the time of the shooting.
