Shooting death investigation in Curry County

CLOVIS, NM (KFDA) - On May 1, 2016, at approximately 4:45 AM, Curry County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to Plains Regional Medical Center to investigate the shooting death of Francisco Perez (30, Clovis). Perez had been brought to the hospital by private vehicle.

The Major Crime Unit was activated to assist with the investigation.

The investigation thus far has determined that Francisco Perez was in dispute with Dominic Carver (24, Clovis), who had allegedly borrowed Perez’ vehicle and failed to return it. Perez reportedly pursued Carver from Clovis to Portales and then back to the Clovis area. In the vicinity of Southland and Mississippi streets, south of Clovis, the pursuit stopped and a confrontation ensued between Perez and the occupants of the vehicle driven by Carver, during which Perez was shot once. Perez was transported to PRMC by the other occupants of his vehicle. He was pronounced dead shortly after arrival at the hospital.

Investigators are currently attempting to locate the following witnesses:

Dominic Carver, 24, Hispanic male, 5’11”, brown hair and brown eyes;

Judas Lopez, 19, Hispanic male, 5’8”, 145 lbs., black hair and brown eyes;

Jimmy Apodaca, 31, Hispanic male, 5’6”, 155 lbs., brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information concerning this investigation and/or the location of the above listed witnesses is asked to contact the Curry County Sheriff’s Office at (575) 769-2335 or the Curry County Crime Stoppers at (575) 763-7000.
