Double homicide suspect pleads guilty in unrelated shootings

Stephen Goldman, 19 (MDC)

A 20-year-old man named as a suspect in the double homicide of two teens pleaded guilty on Friday for his involvement in two unrelated nonfatal shootings that occurred late last year in Northeast Albuquerque.

Court records show Stephen Goldman Jr., also known as Calypso, pleaded guilty to armed robbery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, shooting at or from a motor vehicle and conspiracy charges. He has yet to be sentenced but faces up to eight years in prison.

The charges stem from two separate shootings last November, an armed robbery and drive-by.

Goldman and, according to police, 23-year-old Jimmie Atkins robbed two teenage boys at gunpoint outside a Northeast Albuquerque house party on Nov. 3 before Goldman shot at one of the boys when they tried to run away.

Then on Nov. 22 Goldman fired several shots at another man’s vehicle, hitting the engine and causing it to smoke, as the cars drove along San Mateo in Northeast Albuquerque.

In an unrelated case, prosecutors and police say Goldman and Atkins played a role in the killings of Ahmed Lateef, 14, and Collin Romero, 15.

The boys’ bodies were found on Dec. 29 in a shallow grave on the mesa west of Rio Rancho and police say they had been kidnapped, tortured and shot to death.

Goldman has yet to be charged in those slayings.

Authorities in Las Vegas, Nevada, are also seeking to extradite Goldman to face robbery and burglary charges in connection with the strong-arm robberies of several pharmacies in the area between June and July 2018.
