Bullet strikes New Mexico official’s truck at Canyon Road

SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) — Santa Fe police say they don’t believe a bullet hole through a sate official’s windshield is a hate crime.

State Land Commissioner Aubrey Dunn found his state-issued truck with a bullet hole in the windshield outside his home Wednesday morning.

It comes just a day after the Deputy Land Commissioner had her tires slashed.

Dunn, a Republican, says he’s wondering if the incidents could be politically motivated, as he gears up for next year’s election.

“I haven’t announced yet, but it’s concerning and it makes you take pause on whether you really want to run with everything going on,” Dunn said.

Police told Dunn the shooting likely happened Tuesday afternoon when there were reports of someone firing shots out of a car in the area.

Right now, police say the shooting appears to be random.
