ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – There are new details about the suspect who killed five people across northern New Mexico.
Police penned a number of search warrants so that crime scene investigators could go through everything tied to that deadly evening.
Deputies say 21-year-old Damian Herrera is responsible.
Herrera is accused of shooting and killing his stepfather, his mother, and his brother at their La Madera home near Ojo Caliente.
Deputies say he took off in his stepfather’s truck and when he ran out of gas, police say he shot and killed another man, then carjacked someone else.
Herrera is accused of gunning down a total of five people.
Now, deputies are looking for clues.
They filed search warrants for what Herrera had on him that night, as well as the two stolen trucks.
According to court documents, investigators found multiple gun cartridges and took swabs of what appeared to be blood in his stepfather’s truck.
In the other stolen truck deputies say they found even more ammunition, which included 15 boxes of bullets and several loaded magazines.
That also included hollow point bullets, which do more damage than other types of ammo.
They say they also took two guns into evidence, including a semi-automatic rifle.
Right now it is not clear whether the items belonged to Herrera, but police say they found what appeared to be blood on his shirt.
Deputies say Herrera has confessed to the killings and his relatives claim he’s mentally ill.
No motive has been given for why he murdered his family.
Herrera has no criminal history and a trial has not been set.
