A man who died in a shooting that wounded three others in northern New Mexico recently appeared in a commercial for New Mexico Democratic gubernatorial candidate Michelle Lujan Grisham.

Lujan Grisham said in a statement Friday her heart broke upon hearing about the death of Cameron Martinez.

The 18-year-old recently appeared in her campaign commercial entitled “Two Paths” but the ad never shows his face.

Lujan Grisham says Martinez just started a job at Los Alamos National Lab and called him “remarkable young man.”

Martinez, another male and two females were found wounded Thursday night in a car near the Ohkay Casino, just north of Espanola.

Police say the three others found in the car are expected to survive their injuries. No arrests have been made.
