APD: Arrest made in August homicide

Joe Simon Hilario Lee Anderson, III

Albuquerque police made an arrest Saturday in connection with a fatal August shooting that stemmed from a dispute over a motorcycle.

Gilbert Gallegos, a police spokesman, said Joe Simon Hilario Lee Anderson, III, 41, was arrested and charged with an open count of murder in connection with the fatal shooting of Raymond Aviles on Aug. 6.

Police responded to the shooting at 1:30 a.m. near Eastern and Amherst SE. Aviles had been shot and died in the middle of Eastern Avenue, according to a criminal complaint filed in Metropolitan Court.

Police obtained nearby surveillance footage which shows Aviles pull into an apartment complex on a motorcycle before attempting to flee from a white SUV. The video then shows the SUV’s driver and passenger get out and chase after Aviles, who drives out of the camera’s view.

“It is likely Raymond was on the motorcycle when he was shot and crashed the bike,” police wrote in the complaint.

A “confidential source” told police Anderson lent Aviles a motorcycle and Aviles didn’t return it as promised, according to the complaint. Anderson allegedly drove around with another person looking for Aviles prior to the shooting, according to the complaint.

The complaint says Anderson and another group of people later approached police at the crime scene and asked police the name of the person who was killed.

Police said Anderson was easily identified by his tattoos, which include both a Zia symbol and “505” tattooed on his face, according to jail records.

Anderson was previously convicted of voluntary manslaughter in 2016 for the 2010 fatal shooting of Vincente Sanchez, Gallegos said in a news release.

He was sentenced to seven years in prison in that case, according to court records.

It wasn’t clear Sunday if Anderson has an attorney.

He was booked Saturday into the Metropolitan Detention Center and was being held without bond on Sunday night.

Albuquerque has just reached a record-breaking 115 homicides this year.
