ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Two neighbors' ongoing hostility over a barking dog apparently led to murder at an Albuquerque gas station Tuesday morning.
Witnesses told police a man filling his car at the Valero station near 98th Street NW and Central Avenue around 8 a.m. when he attacked and repeatedly stabbed by another man.
Michael S. Sanchez, 27, died later at UNM Hospital. Police say their suspect is his neighbor, Ricardo Villanueva Córdova, 33.
Apparently the two have had a running dispute over Córdova's dog.
According to police say Sanchez confronted Córdova again earlier Tuesday morning. A short time later, the dog was found badly injured and bleeding.
The Córdova family believed the Sanchez had run the dog over, and Córdova apparently took off looking for him.
A witness at the gas station got Córdova's license plate, and that's how police identified him.
There's a warrant for his arrest tonight but he's still on the run.
