A Hobbs, NM woman was brought to University Medical Center after she was found on the ground, injured after an incident on Tuesday. It was originally thought there was a robbery, but the missing items have been located by family members.

Officers were called to the Allsup's at Sanger and Jefferson in Hobbs about a person down.

Doris Dunn, 79, was found on the ground with injuries to her head. Family members tell us Doris died from her injuries at the hospital just after Noon on Wednesday.
