It is heartbreaking to report that Tejano singer Ernestine Romero was a victim of a fatal shooting in Santa Fe, NM.

According to Ben Valdez, Chef of the Santa Fe Police Department, officers found two adults who appear to have "sustained wounds from a firearm."

The crime scene remains active at this time and authorities are asking motorists to avoid the 300 block of Don Gaspar.

Sources state that Ernestine was found shot to death outside of the New Mexico Public Education Building which is her place of employment.

Her husband, Jesse Saucedo was also found inside a white BMW SUV with at least one firearm inside the vehicle.

Police state that it is still "too early" to tell if this is a murder-suicide and that no suspects were at large following the shootings. Authorities are examining if this is a double suicide.

Stevie D, said in a Facebook post that she had recently recorded at duet with Shelly Lares.

“Today we experienced a horrific tragedy in Santa Fe. My heart is broken for the family and loved ones of the state employee who was tragically and violently taken from us too soon." said New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham "I am grateful to Santa Fe law enforcement for their quick response and I want every state employee to know that we are here to support you through this trying time.”
