HOBBS, NEW MEXICO (KCBD) -

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.

Although the investigation into the death of Ms. Dunn is proceeding, the property that was originally believed to be missing from Ms. Dunn has been located by her family members.

No other information about what happened has been released.

Officials are asking anyone with information to come forward and call the Hobbs Police Department at 575-397-9265 or the Lea County Crime Stoppers at 575-393-8005.
