Search continues for suspect in Friday shooting

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Police are still searching for a man they say is the suspect in the Friday shooting that left one person dead and injured three others and a dog.

Investigators say they have tracked down the car he was driving, but they still don’t know what’s inside.

Marcos Delgado has been on the run for almost two days after police say he shot and killed his ex-girlfriend, Anna Vigil, and injured three others.

But on Saturday afternoon, APD caught a break. They found the black, Dodge Charger they believe Delgado was driving on the 700 block of Tokay in northeast Albuquerque.

They’re still not sure why it was there, but they’ve sealed it up and towed it away until they can get a warrant to search the inside.

It’s the same car Eden says Delgado rammed into his ex-girlfriend’s car Friday at a business on Vasser in northeast Albuquerque.

“According to that witness, the black Dodge Charger slammed into the vehicle in which Anna was sitting. The strike from the Dodge Charger also slammed the witness to the ground,” said Chief Gordon Eden.

That witness was Vigil’s new boyfriend. Police believe this was all part of Delgado’s plan to get back at him and vigil.

“We believe that this is just a fit of angry revenge to an ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend,” Eden said.

Revenge police say also resulted in three other innocent women, one of them pregnant, to be shot and injured, along with a dog. All are expected to survive.

Already, police have asked for help finding Delgado. BCSO, state police and several federal agencies are all pitching in.

“One of the reasons we involved so many agencies right away is in the event he did flee the state of New Mexico, that we would have the involvement of both the United States Marshal Service, the Federal Bureau of Investigations and Homeland Security Investigations,” said Eden.

KRQE News 13 went to Delgado’s house and saw people inside, but no one answered the door.

Delgado is considered armed and dangerous. Police are asking him to turn himself in.

If you see him, they ask you not approach him. Call police immediately.

Police say one woman has been released from the hospital.

The other two are said to be recovering and their conditions are stable.
