ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — One man is behind bars after he tried to rob an alleged drug dealer in Northeast Albuquerque Tuesday, which lead to a shooting, police say.
Timothy Kelly, 23, is charged with attempt to commit a second degree felony, conspiracy, aggravated battery, tampering with evidence, and unlawful carrying of a deadly weapon.
According to a criminal complaint filed in metropolitan court Tuesday, Kelly and two other unidentified males cut the power to the home of Phillip Padilla as part of a plan to rob him of a large amount of cash which he posted a photo of online.
On Nov. 4, officers were dispatched to the 10000 block of Hendrix NE, near Eubank and Montgomery, on reports of shots fired, according to the complaint. While they were setting up a perimeter around the home neighbors said the shots came from, officers said the parents of Padilla’s fiancé drove up and told them they were on the phone with their daughter, who had taken Padilla to Kaseman Hospital after he was shot.
