A trail of blood led Doña Ana County Sheriff's deputies to a mobile home where a man had been shot and now they're looking for the person behind the gun.

Deputies said they were called out to the home on the 3300 block of Winterhaven around 4:30 a.m. Friday.

They said a woman called 911 saying 21-year-old Vicente Hernandez Jr. was shot in the upper torso. Hernandez was taken to University Medical Center in El Paso. Deputies went to the victim's house, where they said they were charged at by a dog in the yard. Investigators said a deputy killed the dog to protect himself.
A trail of blood led deputies to a mobile home a few doors down from Hernandez's house. Deputies have issued a search warrant for a neighboring home where they believe evidence may be.
