One man was killed and two women were wounded Saturday night in a Southeast Albuquerque shooting that authorities say stemmed from a personal dispute over missing items.

An arrest warrant was issued Sunday for Angelica Aguilar, 27, who is charged with an open count of murder and two counts of aggravated battery in connection with the shooting near Central and Dorado SE late Saturday night.

Officers were called to the area just before 11 p.m., said officer Chase Jewell, a spokesman for the Albuquerque Police Department. He said one man died at the scene and two women were shot and taken to the hospital.

The warrant identifies the man who died as Jesus Martinez, Jr., 21. A 22-year-old woman was shot in the abdomen and her sister, whose age was not listed, was shot in the thigh.

A detective at the scene of the shooting interviewed the women’s mother, who said that her 22-year-old daughter had been sharing an apartment with two brothers, Jeremy and Adrian Cly, and Aguilar. The brothers were arrested earlier this summer on suspicion of armed robbery and other charges, and the 22-year-old moved into her mother’s house, according to police.

The women’s mother said Aguilar and perhaps other people began asking about and accusing the 22-year-old of selling property belonging to one of the brothers.

The detective showed the women’s mother a video from Albuquerque police’s Real Time Crime Center, which captured the shooting. The shooting shows a man and a woman pointing guns at the victims and muzzle flashes around Aguilar’s gun, according to the warrant.

The mother said that based on body type she believed the woman was Aguilar.

Another woman who was in the group, but was not shot, told police that a couple days before the shooting, she was walking with the two female victims on Central and an unknown man made threats about the missing items, according to the warrant.

That witness reviewed a “double-blind photo array” and identified Aguilar as the woman, according to court documents. That woman said she was sure that Aguilar was the woman in the video.

Officers talked to one of the shooting victims at the hospital, who told police Aguilar had shot her and her sister and that a man in his 20s had shot Martinez Jr., according to the warrant.

APD did not immediately say whether they were searching for any other suspects.
