ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Sheriff’s deputies continue to search for the man suspected in a double killing in the South Valley last week.

Eric Armando Ferrer, 27, has eluded authorities for a week and deputies are asking for the public’s help to find him. When caught, he is expected to be charged with two counts of murder, assault with attempt to commit a violent felony and shooting at a motor vehicle.

Ferrer is accused of shooting and killing Angelica Herrera, 27, and Adrian Anaya, 28, in a car the night of Aug. 15 near El Charro and Coors SW.

Ferrer was at the home of Clarissa Sanchez, a friend from high school, on El Charro SW the night of the shooting, according to her statement to the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office.

Sanchez is the mother of Anaya’s 2-year-old son, and told deputies she and Anaya had been arguing all day. She invited Ferrer to her home because she was afraid of Anaya, according to deputies.

Anaya, Herrera and a third friend pulled in front of Sanchez’s home around 11 p.m. that night, and deputies say Ferrer opened fire and then fled.

It’s unclear why Anaya went to Sanchez’s home that night, or why Ferrer allegedly opened fire.

Deputies are asking anyone with information about Ferrer’s whereabouts to call (505) 967-5615.
