HOBBS, NM (KWES) - Two people are behind bars in Hobbs, accused of robbing a homeowner at gunpoint.

Police say on Thursday morning, 38-year-old Carl Berry went into the home on East Humble.

While the victim was getting the cash, police say Berry fired several rounds near him.

The victim eventually ran out the backdoor while Berry reloaded the gun.
