ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A shooting at a gas station this summer could be a case of mistaken identity. Now police are searching for the suspect.
It happened July 15 at the Speedway on Coors and Avalon. An arrest warrant states 29-year-old Jorge Jimenez Campos approached two men, accusing them of being in a dispute downtown a few nights earlier. But both men told police they had never seen him before.

He’s now charged with three counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
