PARK RANGER SHOOTING

ABIQUIU DAM, NEW MEXICO

THE DETAILS SURROUNDING THE CRIME

On December 1, 2007, a United States Army Corps of Engineers Park Ranger was performing his routine duties near the Abiquiu Dam area in New Mexico when he noticed that the lock and chain securing a lake pump house had been compromised. While investigating the apparent intrusion, the ranger was met by two individuals exiting the pump house. One of the individuals removed a dark framed revolver from his waistband and fired two shots at the ranger, striking him once. The ranger was able to crawl away from his attackers and is recuperating.

Subject #1 is described as a White or Hispanic male in his early to mid twenties, approximately 5'6", 140 pounds, with black hair. The hair was worn short on the sides and long on top, possibly pulled back into a ponytail. He also had a very pronounced tattoo on the side of his neck, believed to be a figure as opposed to letters or a word.

Subject #2 is described as a White or Hispanic male in his late teens or early twenties, approximately 5'8", 200 pounds, with short, light colored hair and a mustache. He has a colored tattoo on at least one forearm.

REWARD

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individuals involved. Other reward money may be available from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
