ESPAÑOLA, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico State police say a suspect has been arrested in a homicide case.
    
They say 34-year-old Adam Lovato of Española has been booked into the Santa Fe County Detention Center on suspicion of second-degree murder, tampering with evidence and possession of a firearm by a felon.
    
State Police say they were called Monday night to investigate a homicide after 39-year-old Ivan Maestas was found dead in a car in Española.
    
They say Maestas had been at a residence in La Puebla where he reportedly got into an altercation with Lovato and was shot.
    
Police say someone tried to drive Maestas to a hospital for treatment, but the vehicle ran out of gas on State Road 68.
    
Maestas was pronounced dead at the scene by arriving medical personnel.
