ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A man recently charged with shooting and killing another man outside an Albuquerque hotel is expected in court Monday. Police said Xavier Marquez killed Daniel Bustos outside the Travel Lodge near Coors and Illif in June of 2021.

Marquez told officers Bustos fired first, but police say all 14 casings found at the scene came from Marquez’s gun.

He’s been charged with murder and shooting at an occupied building. Marquez faces between two and 17 years behind bars.
