Local News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – KRQE News 13 reported on the accused shooter in Monday night’s protest, Steven Baca long before he ran for city council last year. A 2012 Larry Barker investigation detailed how Baca, then a senior airman, was kicked out of the Air National Guard for a pattern of misbehavior. That included wearing his cover indoors on Kirtland Air Force Base.

That particular infraction led to a confrontation with a Master Sergeant of the Kirtland Security Police Military Police eventually arrested Baca for assault, fleeing the scene of an accident, insubordination and failure to obey an order. He was given a general discharge. In high school, Baca was in ROTC at Valley High School.
