Tuesday marks 25 years since NM bowling massacre

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (KRQE) – It was 25 years ago Tuesday that New Mexico was stunned by a mass murder in Las Cruces, now known as the Las Cruces bowling alley massacre. It’s a case that is still unsolved.

On Feb. 10, 1990, seven people were shot at the Las Cruces Bowl. Four people died.

Two robbers made their way in through an unlocked door just at the bowling alley was preparing to open. The men took about $5,000 from the safe, then shot the victims execution style before setting the office on fire.

A 2-year-old and her 6-year-old sister were the youngest victims. Composite sketches of the shooters were made, but the suspects were never identified.
