ANTHONY, N.M.--- A man is shot and killed at a home in Anthony, N.M., and Dona Ana Sheriff's Deputies are looking for the gunman.

Sheriff's deputies say the shooting happened around 1:36 p.m. in the 1100 block of Tierra Huichol Circle.

The 39-year-old unidentified man died around 2:30 p.m., as rescue crews were driving him by ambulance to University Medical Center in El Paso.

Deputies say the man did die as the result of at least one gunshot wound.

Investigators say it began as a domestic dispute between a man and woman, when one of the parties recruited several accomplices.

We are told the man who died was among the accomplices.

The man's body is now being transferred to Albuquerque for the autopsy at the request of Dona Ana County District Attorney Susana Martinez.
