“Around 1:46 a.m. a second woman, identified as 28-year-old Rebecca Jacquez of Farmington, was dropped off at the emergency room with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to her buttock,” police spokesperson Georgette Allen said in the press release.  “She was treated and discharged from the hospital.”
