Santa Fe police are investigating an overnight shooting at Cheeks nightclub, 2841 Cerrillos Road.

(as also now posted on The New Mexican website)

Two men whose names and ages have not yet been released by investigators were “shot multiple times” shortly after 2 a.m. in the rear parking lot of the nightclub, according to Capt. Aric Wheeler.

While police have not yet released the names of those men shot, The New Mexican has learned they are Joe Corriz, 40, and Steven Quintana, 36.

Corriz was airlifted to University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque and is in critical condition, police say, while Quintana is in serious condition at Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center.

Wheeler would not comment on whether suspects have been identified. He said any other information on the shooting could not be released as of early afternoon Friday because it is an ongoing investigation but hoped more details could be released by late Friday.
