The search continues Monday for the suspect accused of shooting and killing a man in Albuquerque over the weekend.

The Bernallilo County Sheriff's Department believes Jesse Luna, 35, may be connected to the death of 44-year-old Manuel Perea.

Deputies found Perea's body on Saturday after responding to reports of shots fired near Sunset and Bridge.

Lunas is described as 5-foot-11 and 155 pounds with a shaved head and goatee. He was last seen wearing a white shirt and blue jeans.

According to BCSO, Luna has a lengthy felony history and should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information about Luna's whereabouts is urged to contact BCSO at 798-7000.
