That victim is still in the hospital being treated for his injuries.

Police say 26-year-old Edwardo Casillas was found by Albuquerque police at a local motel Friday and arrested on an unrelated warrant.

State police interviewed Casillas after he was booked, officials say, when he "admitted to state police agents that he shot the victim." He is being charged with attempted murder, tampering with evidence and shooting from a motor vehicle.
