Nebraska man ID’d as victim of fatal shooting in New Mexico

May 15, 2019

MAGDALENA, N.M. (AP) — Authorities have released the name of a Nebraska man who was killed in New Mexico earlier this week.

New Mexico State Police say the victim was 30-year-old Stuart Gordon of Lincoln.

His name was released Wednesday after his relatives were notified of his death.

State Police say 39-year-old Jo Hill is jailed without bond on suspicion of an open count of murder.

The Magdalena Marshals Office was dispatched Monday afternoon to the High Country Lodge about a gunshot victim.

Gordon was pronounced dead at the scene and State Police was brought in to investigate.

They say Hill and Gordon got into a physical altercation in the parking lot of the lodge.

Hill then reportedly shot the victim.

It was unclear Wednesday if Hill has a lawyer yet.
