Halyna, 42, was transported via helicopter to University of New Mexico Hospital, but was later pronounced dead.

Joel, 48, was treated for his injuries at Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center, and was later released.

Juan Rios, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office, said: “This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”
