Romero's Facebook page shows that she recently performed at the Las Vegas Fourth of July Fiestas and celebrated her birthday on Wednesday.

In addition to her singing career, Ernestine, 32, worked for the state, within the Public Education Department.

Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham joined fans in mourning Ernestine.

"My heart is broken for the family and loved ones of the state employee who was tragically and violently taken from us too soon," the governor said.

Fans were in shock after hearing about the singer's death.

"She was fireworks on stage," said Mark Ortiz, who said he met her in 2006. "I mean Selena was her biggest influence."

Police say Jessie Saucedo, 34, was also found dead in an SUV outside the Jerry Apodaca Education Building. 

Police would not say if this case is being investigated as a murder-suicide, but they said they do not have any outstanding suspects.
