An out-of-state man is in custody after reportedly shooting and killing a Texas hunter in Dolores County on Friday. 

Ronald Morosko, of Elizabeth, Pa., is being held in the Montezuma County Jail on suspicion of committing a criminally negligent homicide, according to the Dolores County Sheriff's Office. 

First responders were sent to the Kilpacker Trailhead around 11 a.m. Friday after a report of a hunter being shot. They located the hunter, later identified as 31-year-old Gregory Gabrisch of Houston, who has since died as a result of the shooting, officials said.
