ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Bernalillo County Sheriff’s officials say a teenager wanted in a homicide case last month is in custody.

The 17-year-old boy was arrested Monday by the U.S. Marshals Service Task Force.

The teen’s name isn’t being released by The Associated Press because he’s a juvenile.

Sheriff’s officials say the boy is facing charges of murder, attempt to commit a felony, aggravated battery, shooting at or from a motor vehicle and shooting at a dwelling.

Authorities say one man was found dead on June 27 and two others had gunshot wounds.

Sheriff’s officials have identified the man who died at the scene as 20-year-old Isaiah Villanueva.


They say another teenager also was arrested in the homicide case on June 28 and he’s facing charges of murder and tampering with tampering with evidence.
