ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A local ATF spokesperson has confirmed the last of three suspected gunmen in a deadly shooting at an Albuquerque Denny's in 2009 has been arrested.
Francisco Melgar-Cabrera had been on the run for four years.
He was reportedly found Friday in El Salvador and is expected to be extradited to the U.S.
Melgar-Cabrera faces federal charges, accused of trying to rob a Denny's restaurant at Coors and Iliff in June of 2009.
Investigators say he was wearing a mask and waving a gun, alongside Pablo Ortiz and Marvin Aguilar-Lopez.
Investigators said Aguilar-Lopez slipped because he was only wearing socks and accidently fired a bullet that ricocheted, killing Stephanie Anderson, a 34-year-old cook.
Aguilar-Lopez and Ortiz were caught soon after and are serving long prison sentences.
Melgar-Cabrera has been wanted ever since, with the ATF even offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.
He is wanted for charges including murder while carrying a firearm during a crime of violence and attempted robbery.
A spokesperson with the U.S. attorney's office says they can not comment on extradition matters.
Ortiz was sentenced to 35 years behind bars. Aguilar-Lopez was sentenced to 40 years.
A current Denny's manager says he is glad to hear the final suspect may also be put to justice, especially for the victim's family.
