ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A couple who says they were shot at after confronting a suspicious woman in their driveway has turned to police and the public for help identifying the woman.
Dashcam video from the couple’s Jeep shows the woman, wearing a bow in her hair and dressed in leopard-print pajama shorts and tight white tank top, pointing a gun directly at the couple’s Jeep, which they’d used to block the woman and her car in their driveway as they confronted her Sunday morning.
Albuquerque police on Sunday evening officially released the video of the incident. Still images of the armed woman and her white Camry spread on social media as the couple’s family members sought help identifying her. Police described her as 5 feet 4 inches tall, 130 pounds and in her early 20s.
The couple, in their 60s, says they were heading to church when they noticed a white Camry suspiciously driving in the neighborhood near Comanche and Wyoming, so they looped around the block only to find the car in their own driveway in the 3600 block of General Patch NE.
They blocked it in with their Jeep and began to confront the woman who said she was looking for her aunt before returning to the Camry.
Police said she then pulled a gun, pointed it at the 63-year-old man and told him to move his Jeep.
That’s when, police say, the woman fired, striking a nearby vehicle.
Police say they are hoping the public exposure of the video and the photographs can help them identify the woman.
