An Albuquerque food delivery driver accused of killing a homeless man last October was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service in California on Wednesday.
Brandon Chatmon, 20, is charged with an open count of murder in the Oct. 27 death of 54-year-old Vincent Lopez. It’s unclear where he is being held or if he has an attorney.
Chatmon, who was working as an Uber Eats delivery driver at the time, was accused of shooting Lopez multiple times near a Wingstop restaurant at Zuni and San Mateo SE, according to a criminal complaint filed in Metropolitan Court.
Surveillance footage from Wingstop showed the suspect entering the restaurant to pick up an order before the shooting, the complaint states. Police were able to identify Chatmon as a suspect based on the license plate number of the car before he fled the scene.
A Marshals Task Force in California was able to locate Chatmon in the Long Beach area after detectives from the Albuquerque Police Department learned he had fled to that state, according to an APD news release.
