ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Albuquerque police have arrested a member of the National Guard following a fatal [auth] shooting. Anthony Baldonado was arrested on suspicion of murder following a shooting Saturday that left one man dead. Baldonado appeared in court Sunday.
New Mexico Guard officials tell KOB-TV (http://bit.ly/x5NW9y ) that the 22-year-old Baldonado recently returned from a deployment in Kosovo.
The man who was killed is identified as Gilbert Danny Chavez.
A criminal complaint indicates Baldonado was upset with Chavez and went to his home with a rifle. Inside, the two men argued.
Baldonado told investigators that Chavez pointed a gun at him so he blocked it.
