Albuquerque man shot, carjacked at CVS sues drugstore chain

News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A man shot during a carjacking at an Albuquerque CVS is now suing the drugstore chain.

It happened back in 2014 at the CVS on Eubank and Menaul. Police say the suspect tried to steal William Lilley’s car then shot him several times in the chest.

The thief was able to drive off with the car, a 2000 “candy apple red” Mercedes with custom rims. It was later found abandoned and no one has ever been charged in the case.

Now, Lilley has filed a lawsuit against CVS, saying the company and its employees should have taken steps to make the location safer for customers.

Lilley spent more than 90 days in the hospital and had more than $1.2 million in medical expenses.
