November 27, 2018

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Bernalillo County Sheriff’s officials say they’re investigating the death of a man considered a possible suspect in a convenience store shooting earlier this month.

They say 22-year-old Brian Romero was found dead in Belen and it’s a homicide case.

Sheriff’s officials say multiple suspects fled the scene of a Nov. 9 convenience store shooting, but there were no reported injuries.

They say Romero was identified as one of the individuals from the shooting incident before he was reported missing by a family member on Feb. 13.

Romero was entered into the National Crime Information Center as an endangered missing person.

Sheriff’s officials say they were notified Friday by the New Mexico State Police that Romero’s body had been found.

The cause of death hasn’t been disclosed and no suspects identified.
