Sentencing delayed after man pleads guilty in Planet Fitness shooting

LAS CRUCES – A judge delayed sentencing a Las Cruces man after he pleaded guilty to shooting a woman inside a local gym in 2021.

The judge delayed a sentencing hearing Monday, saying he needed a report from the New Mexico Department of Corrections before the hearing could continue. The judge said that as soon as he had the report, he would move to sentence 29-year-old Jose Daniel Chavez.

Court records show Chavez pleaded guilty to one count of attempted murder in the first degree and one count of tampering with evidence. Chavez has been jailed since police said he shot a woman working the front desk at Planet Fitness on El Paseo Road on Aug. 3, 2021.
