ANTHONY, N.M. (AP) – Authorities say a security guard at the Human Services Department building in Anthony has been wounded by a gunman who was later found dead in his car in Texas.

New Mexico State Police say the security guard is in surgery and in critical condition.

They say the gunman walked into the Human Services Department building about 2 p.m. Tuesday, shot the on-duty security guard and fled.

Police immediately issued an all-points bulletin for the suspect.

Sheriff’s deputies in Texas later spotted the suspect driving in El Paso County.

But when deputies stopped the vehicle, they walked up to find the man dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The names of the suspect and the security guard weren’t immediately released. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
