The alleged triggerman in the murder of a gas station attendant faced a judge Friday.

Daniel Martinez had been hospitalized since his arrest. Police say he accidentally shot himself while trying to get away from a security guard.

Martinez and seven others are accused of taking part in the robbery of the Smithโ€™s gas station in Edgewood on Feb. 11.

Witnesses say Martinez shot gas station attendant Michael Pelky as Pelky got into a physical altercation with another suspect.

Friday in court, the state called for Martinez to be kept behind bars until trial.

A Santa Fe District Court judge will make that decision next week.
