ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - We have learned a lot more about a car break-in that ended with a 16-year-old La Cueva High Student being shot and the car's owner arrested.
It happened early Sunday morning on Julian Robles street near Wyoming and Paseo del Norte.
According to the criminal complaint, the teen decided to ditch Saturday's homecoming dance to smoke pot, drink and break into cars with his 19-year-old friend.
But their plan ended when Kyle Cordova spotted one of them in his car.
He was apparently upset because his car had been broken into twice before.
Police say Cordova and the teen got into an argument and that's when Cordova shot him once.
Cordova was arrested and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
He was in court Monday where his attorney asked the judge to release him from jail.
"Absolutely no significant (criminal) history whatsoever,” said Cordova’s attorney Sam Bregman. “We ask that he be released on his own recognizance at this time. He has lifelong ties. He's been here his entire life."
The judge refused and continued Cordova's $15,000 cash or surety bond.
As for the accused teen burglar, police will only say he's still in the hospital and his condition is stable.
Police say once he's released, he'll be booked on burglary charges.
