Victim ID'd in fatal Gallup shooting

GALLUP, N.M. (KRQE) – Detectives have yet to say if they have made an arrest in a shooting at a fast food restaurant Saturday, but they have released the name of the man who died.

Gallup police say around noon Saturday, the mas was ordering food inside a McDonald’s. They say the shooter, 32-year-old Gerald Wilson, walked in and got into an argument with the victim, Christopher Greyeagle.

Police say when the shooter left, Greyeagle headed outside to get the Wilson’s license plate. That is when police say the suspect pulled out a gun and fired three shots, one hitting Greyeagle.

He later died at a Gallup hospital.

Wilson is charged with an open count of murder, tampering with evidence, shooting from a vehicle and five counts of intimidation of a witness. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
