Santa Fe County deputies say they have captured the prime suspect in a Christmas Day double homicide.

Deputies had just announced Monday that they were offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Joe Rivera, 18.

Rivera is the primary suspect in the Christmas Day shooting deaths of John Griego, 23, and Nicholas Baker, 29.

The two men were shot during a fight at a party south of Santa Fe.
