SNIPPET: “ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Police in Albuquerque said a restaurant employee has been killed after several armed suspects attempted a takeover-style robbery at a packed Denny’s Restaurant.
Police spokeswoman Officer Nadine Hamby said “multiple” armed suspects rushed the northwest Albuquerque restaurant at about 9:30 a.m. Saturday. As many as 100 people were inside.
A Saturday morning breakfast for 60 restaurant guests quickly turned into a nightmare.
Police said a group of masked men and possibly women stormed into the popular diner and began shooting.
Witnesses said us one of the men had a machine gun, the others fired handguns at random.”
SNIPPET: “When a 19-year old female employee made a comment about it, the gunmen shot her, killing her. Her identity was not released.”
SNIPPET: “Hamby said detectives have more than 60 witnesses to interview, and not all saw the same thing. Witnesses reported seeing from two to six suspects.”

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —
SNIPPET: “Martinez claims that’s when this stranger made a serious confession about something he and his friends had done this morning.
“I had asked him, ‘Why don’t you want to stop?’ I said, ‘Did you kill somebody?’ He said, ‘Yeah,’” Martinez said.
Martinez said he then dropped him off down the street and went back to the mobile home park to warn police. Martinez said he did learn a lesson from this and he’ll never give a stranger another ride.
Police said they can’t confirm if the man he picked up is a possible suspect.”

Nice job Cindy,
And great follow up.
Keep it up.
Which Denny’s in ABQ was it at ? I can’t seem to find out as there appears conflicting info in the articles.
How much money can you get from a Denny’s? idiots they will do the same amount of time if they held up a bank.
As per the local TV station, the restaurant at 1602 Coors Blvd. NW .
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Police in New Mexico say two suspects are in custody on suspicion of murder after a takeover-style robbery at a packed Denny's Restaurant where a female employee was killed.
Uh.. can we blame Quentin Tarantino for this?
"I hate to disappoint you Ringo."
"But this isn't the first time
I've had a Gun pointed at me."
Nothing against Quentin. Love his movies.
But this is right out of Pulp Fiction.
And what's good for the Goose, is good for the Gander.
Gee, I wonder why....
Some of our new ‘immigrants’ here to save the economy.
“Hamby said the men who were arrested are in their late 20s to early 30s and are from South America, but she did not know where specifically. She said police were working with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to verify the men’s identities.”
ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Murder, tampering with evidence, child abuse, and dozens of counts of kidnapping are a few of the long list of charges Albuquerque police say 22-year-old Marvin Aguilar-Lopez, and 32-year-old Pablo Ortiz are facing. Aguilar-Lopez and Ortiz are two of the men who stormed an Albuquerque Dennys Saturday killing a woman who worked there.
The Albuquerque Police Department is still waiting for full confirmation on the names of the two men since they say theyre from Central America and immigration and customs enforcement is now involved. Both suspects in custody say theyre from El Salvador, but thats only one twist to the developing story.
According to the criminal complaints obtained by KRQE News 13, the suspects are part of a group that may be connected to a string of armed robberies in Albuquerque.
Apparently so according to local sources.
Yep, that’s what I’m hearing. MS-13
One source inside the police department stated that two recently arrived from Bolivia.
"The two Caucasian suspects refer to each other as Butch and Sundance," stated the officer. "Frankly, we're stumped."
Confirmed. It will probably come out in the next couple days that APD knew all about these clowns before the fact.
Scored a nice S&W at Ron’s sale. :)
I read Coors and I-40 in an earlier story, near West Mesa HS.
Nope, a used 4586. Great sleeper of a gun.
We get some really unique weapons in just about every week.
Yep, alot of the 3rd Gen Smith autos got a bad rap and had the misfortune to be made when the plastic fantastics started showing up. I particularly like the DAO versions.
