-A A +A

Staff and Wire Report

SANTA FE — Authorities say a state employee is one of the two people found dead in the downtown Santa Fe area.

The name of the woman wasn't immediately released Thursday afternoon.

Santa Fe police responded to a report of a shooting in the 300 block of Don Gaspar in downtown Santa Fe, in the parking lot of the Jerry Apodaca Education Building. Officers located two adults who appeared to have sustained wounds from a firearm, according to a statement posted on the police Facebook page.

Neither person was identified.

Police say there isn't a suspect at large, which could mean the deaths resulted from a murder-suicide or double suicide. Police were asking the public and motor vehicle traffc to avoid the area.

The Albuquerque Journal reports two bodies were found in an SUV parked near the New Mexico Supreme Court and state Public Education Departments buildings around 1 p.m.

In a statement, New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham called the incident "a horrific tragedy" and says the state employee "was tragically and violently taken from us too soon."

The governor's office said grief counseling was made immediately available to state employees through the State Personnel Office.
