Man arrested after firing gun outside Sandoval County courthouse, deputies say

Cuyler Pagano (SCDC)
A man was arrested after allegedly firing a gun in the parking lot of the Sandoval County courthouse in Bernalillo on Tuesday evening.

Cuyler Pagano, 36, was booked into the Sandoval County Detention Center around midnight.

Sandoval County Sheriff’s Lt. John Castañeda said nobody was injured in the incident.

Online court records show no charges had been filed against Pagano by Wednesday morning. Stephen Montoya, a Sandoval County spokesman, said Pagano “has not been formally charged with anything.”

Castañeda said he didn’t know what charges Pagano would face.

“This incident is currently an active investigation,” Castañeda said in a news release.

He said Sandoval County deputies responded around 6:40 p.m. to reports of gunfire outside the 13th Judicial Complex in Bernalillo. Castañeda said Pagano, who was armed with a gun and had fired at least one shot, was taken into custody.

He said “for safety precautions” all Sandoval County employees were under a three-hour work delay Wednesday morning.
