Albuquerque police arrest second man in Good Samaritan shooting

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Albuquerque police caught another man they say was involved in shooting at a Good Samaritan last month.

APD says Trevor Traylor is one of three men accused of going after a man who was standing up for a woman at a gas station.

It happened a little more than a month ago at a Valero on the corner of Unser and McMahon.

Police say three men, Nicholas Chavez, Tyler Wright and Trevor Taylor, were hassling a woman and “cat-calling” her aggressively. That’s when a man confronted them.

Surveillance video shows the three chasing that man around the parking lot. Then they got in their car, went after him, and fired two shots at the car. The Good Samaritan was not hurt.

APD arrested 18-year old Chavez at his home last Tuesday.

Saturday afternoon, officers arrested 19-year-old Traylor. Police were able to identify him because his dad saw his picture on the news.

He was in court Sunday facing the judge who approved his arrest warrant. Traylor is facing five felony counts including two charges for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

APD still has an arrest warrant out for Wright. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
