Las Cruces police are investigating what appears to be a homicide that occurred early Wednesday morning at a home on the city’s East Mesa.

Shortly after 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday, July 8, police were dispatched to a 911 hang-up at a home on the 5800 block of Desert Mesa Place. Officers arrived to find a 73-year-old man dead. Another man at the residence was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The second man has since been released from the hospital and, as part of the investigation, is in police custody. Police have reason to believe there are no outstanding suspects in this case. No charges have been filed at this time.

Additional information will be released at the appropriate time.
