The Curry County Sheriff’s office has no new leads in connection with Friday’s shooting south of Clovis that hospitalized two men, including one in critical condition, according to Undersheriff Doug Bowman.
A spokesperson for University Medical Center in Lubbock said Tuesday evening that Larry Gomez, 45, is still in critical condition with gunshot wounds to the abdomen. Phillip Gee, 41, is being treated for gunshots to his back at an undisclosed medical facility and Bowman said his condition is slowly improving.
“I’m not a doctor, but he is alert and coherent and we’re hoping to go down there (Wednesday) to interview him,” Bowman said.
Gomez and Gee were shot about 10:40 p.m. Friday at Gomez’ mobile home on the 100 block of Mississippi.
Bowman said his department is fairly sure a single gunman went into Gomez’ mobile home and shot both Gee and Gomez, but with both patients initially unable to communicate and no witnesses to the shooting, Bowman said deputies are stumped and need help.
“If anybody’s got any information that could help us out we’d sure appreciate it,” Bowman said.
