DULCE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico State Police are investigating a shooting incident in Dulce that has left a man dead.

Jicarilla police officers responded to the River Road area in Dulce about 7 p.m. Wednesday after a woman reported she had been injured by her boyfriend in a domestic violence incident.

After the altercation, the man retreated to his tent in an area where the two had been camping.

Police went to the area and ordered the man to come out of the tent.

They say he did but had a handgun, placed it under his chin and shot himself.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities say one Jicarilla police officer fired his handgun, but didn’t hit the suspect.

The name of the man wasn’t immediately released.
