Shooting Rumors Engulf City

Wild rumors of several people shot as a result of the blackmail threat made public yesterday caused a lot of anxiety today.

One NMSU professor announced to her class that two people had been killed and sent all her students home in fear.

It appeared that there was extra security present around city and county buildings today, but officials said that the additional security was a result of the original threats, not the rumors spreading today.

Police have established a tip line for anyone with information about the blackmail threats, (505) 635-9934.
