ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Sheriff's deputies have made an arrest in this weekend’s fatal attack on a Valencia County family.
Two people, a man and his daughter, were shot and killed.
Detectives arrested 18-year-old Jordan Hurd Tuesday morning, charging him with two open counts of murder along with other related charges.
Swat team members and deputies were gearing up to get Hurd when they stopped for coffee at the Los Lunas McDonald's Restaurant and spotted Hurd inside. They were able to arrest him on scene without incident.
Deputies believe Hurd shot and killed 54-year-old Wesley Hobbs as well as his 24-year-old daughter Amanda on Saturday night at their home in Jarales.
Hobbs' wife Patricia was also shot, but she has survived.
Detectives say the shooting was the result of a meth deal gone bad between Hurd and Hobbs.
They say Hobbs' daughter and wife had no involvement. Also they believe narcotics, more specifically meth were the motive behind the shooting.
Detectives also think Hurd and one other suspect went to the home with the intention of robbing Hobbs.
Hurd was arrested around Tuesday morning without incident at the McDonalds here in Los Lunas.
Valencia county sheriff Louis Burkhard says it was clear early on this was not a random but targeted crime.
“There’s no indication that there was money owed to anyone at this time. It appears that they went there to obtain methamphetamine,” Sheriff Burkhard said.
The search continues for the second and a possible third suspect from Saturday night's shooting.
Detectives believe Hurd was the man who pulled the trigger.
Hurd is being held on a $1 million bond.
According to online court records, he is facing three separate trials on weapons, drug possession and burglary charges.
