ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities are looking for a man suspected of shooting another man on the West Mesa after arguing about a horse.
The Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office says 52-year-old Eduardo Bracamonte remains in critical but stable condition after suffering a gunshot wound to his lower abdomen.
Capt. Edward Mims says authorities have an arrest warrant for 41-year-old Louie Roybal.
Mims says Albuquerque police were initially called just after 5 p.m. Saturday to an undeveloped property where horses are occasionally boarded.
Witnesses told police and sheriff's deputies that Roybal and Bracamonte had been fighting about the price of a horse when the shooting occurred.
Mims says the victim was likely shot with a small gauge shotgun.
