Reward offered in shooting death of Las Cruces businessman

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — Police are offering a $2,000 reward as investigators search for suspects in connection with the fatal shooting of a businessman in Las Cruces.

KVIA-TV reports the reward offer comes days after police found 79-year-old Oscar Amezquita on Saturday following reports of gunshots.

Amezquita, a longtime resident of the community and owner of the Landis Boot and Shoe Service, suffered at least one bullet wound and died shortly after officers found him.

No arrests have been made.
