ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Bernalillo County deputies say an underage summer party in Albuquerque’s South Valley turned deadly.
A criminal complaint shows kids as young as 14 were partying at a home off of Broadway and Second Street two nights ago when an argument broke out. Angel Grado, 17, is charged with shooting and killing 20-year-old Isaiah Villanueva.
He says he fired one shot after a group of guys started punching him. Grado then says he ran.
Deputies also found an 18-year-old and a 20-year-old with gunshot wounds. The accused shooter says his friend at the party had a gun too, but charges haven’t been filed in court against that person at this time.
Grado claims the fight started after a group “disrespected” a girl at the party.
