APD: Fifth suspect arrested for drive-by that killed 5-year-old girl
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Police confirmed Friday they arrested a fifth suspect allegedly involved in the drive-by shooting death of a 5-year-old girl.
Albuquerque police arrested 19-year-old Sencheray Renee Hernandez, who reportedly admitted to her involvement in the shooting Thursday.
Detectives detained and interviewed Hernandez when they arrested her boyfriend, Jose Luis Ramirez, for the shooting.
Hernandez reportedly admitted to riding in one of the vehicles to the home where the shooting occurred. However, she claims she didn’t fire a weapon.
Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for her. Like the other four teen suspects, she faces charges of murder, conspiracy, shooting at a dwelling or occupied building, shooting at or from a motor vehicle, and unlawful taking of a motor vehicle.
All five teenage suspects are staying behind bars for now.
On Friday, a judge ruled that 15-year-old Alexander Barraza and 16-year-old Yahir Carballo are dangers to the community. They will be in custody until trial.
