Alamongordo, NM – Footage of the shooting that killed Alamogordo police Officer Clint Corvinus and wanted fugitive Joseph Moreno last September was released by the New Mexico District Attorney’s Office Thursday afternoon. District Attorney John Sugg said he met with Corvinus’ and Moreno’s family to go over the findings with them as the investigation into the shooting is now complete. Lapel video from Officer Christopher Welch, who was on patrol with Corvinus the day of the incident, was shown during a press conference. “We have determined two things. First, that Officer Clint Corvinus was shot and killed by Joseph Moreno and second, that Officer Christopher Welch was justified in shooting Joseph Moreno,” Sugg said. On Sept. 2 Welch was on the final stages of the field office training. He had been with the Alamogordo Police Department for 10 months, according to police.
