ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Police believe a love triangle may have been what prompted a murder in northeast Albuquerque early Sunday morning.
Clive Phillips, 21, is accused of shooting his girlfriend, Alexzandria Buhl and his roommate, Adrian Carriaga, after catching the two in bed together.
According to court documents, another roommate caught Buhl and Carriaga together earlier in the day and called Phillips to let him know what was going on.
Phillips rushed home and says he saw it for himself, grabbed his gun and shot and killed Carriaga. He then shot his girlfriend in the leg.
He told police that he intentionally shot Buhl in the leg because he couldn’t kill her but wanted her to have something that would always remind her of him.
Phillips was arrested shortly after the shooting Sunday morning.
