Grant County Sheriff’s Department identifies Western Drive Shooting suspect…Issues Warrant for Arrest of David Beckner.

On Sunday January 29th, 2017 just before 9:30 A.M., Grant County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to #45 Western Drive in reference to a male subject shooting at a blue mobile home. This caller requested to remain anonymous and hung up the phone when dispatchers requested more information.

Deputies arrived on scene and were unable to locate a victim nor the reporting party. While Deputies were investigating this incident, they received information from Central Dispatch that there was a male at Gila Regional Medical Center requesting to be treated for a gunshot wound. Silver City Police Officers, Grant County Deputies and investigators responded to the hospital. The victim in this case was identified as Rodney Chavez (23 YOA/Silver City). Chavez was shot on his left leg. Investigators believe the weapon used in this case was a shotgun. Detectives processed the scene, interviewed witnesses and the victim.

David Beckner (40 YOA/Hanover NM) was identified as the individual responsible for the shooting. A warrant for Beckner’s arrest was issued today for Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon. This is a 3rd Degree Felony warrant with a $50,000 cash bond out of Magistrate Judge Laney’s Court.

Beckner also has three other Warrants which are listed below:
• Probation Violation with no bond
• Warrant out of Pima County Arizona for Failure to Appear, original charge was Larceny, $10,000 bond
• Warrant Out of Hidalgo County for Aggravated Fleeing $10,000 Cash bond

Anyone having information on this case or Beckner’s whereabouts is urged to call Central Dispatch at 575-388-8840 or the Grant County Sheriff’s Department at 575-574-0100.

Saw the State Cops flying down 180 E about this time, so maybe that was when this guy was apprehended.We dohave some folks out there who have dangerous weapons about.Over these 15 yeaers, there's been some serious violence perpetrated in this town. Good to get one more guy like this off the streets.
