Local News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Police have identified a man wanted for murder. They’re looking for Jerred Holguin. He’s facing a murder charge after a shooting at a car wash near San Mateo and Marble that happened last week.

Police say twin brothers were walking past the car wash when two men tried picking a fight with them, one of them being Holguin.

They say the brothers kept walking when Holguin pulled out a gun and shot toward them. Police say Matthew Shaw was killed.

After releasing the surveillance video, police say they got a lot of tips, including from Holguin’s mother who identified him.

Holguin was just arrested and released a week prior to this shooting after deputies with the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office said the 22-year-old pulled out a gun at an Allsups and threatened to kill a woman because she cussed at his girlfriend.

Holguin has been on the run for more than a week now. He’s facing an open count of murder.

The Albuquerque Police Department has not said if the other man in the video is facing any charges or the two women who were with them.
