One Dead, Another Injured In Robbery

Camera phone video shows the scene of a one car accident following an apparent botched convenience store robbery where the alleged hold-up men were shot. One man is dead and a second injured following an armed robbery attempt at the Pajarito Corner Store in the South Valley on Monday, in which the two suspects were apparently shot by someone in the store. Sgt. Aaron Williamson, spokesman for the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office, said deputies were called to an armed robbery in progress at about 6:45 p.m. at the store on the 5200 block of Isleta SW. While en route, they were told by dispatch that two male suspects were fleeing the scene in a silver Mercedes, which crashed into a tree near Isleta and Metzgar Road. When found, the passenger was pronounced dead from an apparent gunshot wound. The driver was taken into custody and transported to University of New Mexico Hospital with a gunshot wound to his arm.
