ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A fight at an Albuquerque gas station quickly turned deadly on Sunday night.
Police said it started at around 8:00 p.m. at the Circle K gas station, right on the corner of Lomas and Eubank.
Albuquerque Police said two men at the gas station got into a fight, but they do not know what they were fighting about. It didn’t take long before the fight turned deadly.
“Witnesses said that two individuals were involved in a fight, two males. Somehow it fell out into the street here on Lomas. When officers arrived, they found a deceased male,” said Officer Simon Drobik of Albuquerque Police.
Police have charged a man said they believe is responsible for the man’s death based on witness descriptions. Muhammad Ameer is now facing an open count of murder and robbery charges.
Police said they tracked him down at a Babies R Us, about five blocks away from the scene of the crime. Ameer was treated for non-life threatening injuries before he was booked Monday morning.
Police said Ameer is from Michigan and they’re not sure if he was just passing through.
The victim has been identified as 30-year-old Aaron Sieben.
Investigators are still trying to determine the motive in this case.
