........................................................................................................................................................................................

FORT SUMNER, N.M. (AP) — The tombstone of Billy the Kid has been repaired.

Officials at the old Fort Sumner Museum say the famous outlaw’s 2000-pound tombstone was restored this week after vandals tipped it over and damaged it last month.

De Baca County authorities say other graves in the cemetery were also vandalized and thieves broke into the old Fort Sumner Museum. Three antique rifles and a shotgun were stolen from the museum.

Museum officials say an air conditioning unit has been fixed and the exhibits are open to the public.

No arrests have been made.
