Clovis Police Department officers were dispatched to a house at Paseo Village after 2:00 a.m. on July 5 after receiving a call from a man who said his friend was "playing" with a firearm after consuming alcohol and had been shot in the head. 

Emergency officials arrived at the house to find 23-year-old Marcus Jimenez of Olton, Texas with a gunshot wound to his head. He was initially taken to Plains Regional Medical Center in New Mexico but was then taken to University Medical Center in Lubbock.

A family member said Jimenez has since died from his wound, according to the Eastern New Mexico News.
