KRQE News 13 published a story Thursday evening about a complaint of a retired firefighter shooting off illegal fireworks in a neighborhood. We were given information that the person shooting off fireworks was Matthew Sanchez.
KRQE reported it was Matthew Sanchez, the dispatcher in 2015 who hung up on a teenager trying to help 17-year-old Jaydon Chavez-Silver, the Manzano High School teenager killed in a drive-by shooting. That was incorrect. That Matthew Sanchez had nothing to do with the illegal fireworks.
We apologize for the error.
