Police continue investigation into shooting death of 11-year-old Froylan Villegas
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – It’s been a full week since 11-year-old Froylan Villegas was killed in a road rage shooting on Avenida Cesar Chavez following an Isotopes game last week. His cousin was also shot and seriously injured.
APD released photos of the shooter’s SUV. They say it’s a black or dark-colored Dodge Durango SRT, but haven’t named any suspects.
Mayor Tim Keller touched on part of the reason why it’s been such a challenge in his recent call for a special session.
“One of the reasons why we’ve had so much trouble getting this Durango and finding it is because the cameras were so old and bad in this area around UNM. And we can literally fix that. I mean, those fixes are like six months away, nine months away with the right funding,” Keller said.
Albuquerque police spokesman Gilbert Gallegos says detectives are working hard on this case.
