ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Albuquerque police are seeking a 20-year-old man in the shooting of his ex-girlfriend. She was shot and wounded several hours after child abuse and domestic violence charges against the man were dropped.
The Albuquerque Journal (http://bit.ly/ZxezZb ) reports that the woman was to testify in a criminal case against 20-year-old Rastice Burdex.
According to the Journal, the case was dismissed Tuesday morning when the woman didn’t appear to testify.
The woman was wounded Tuesday afternoon when she was shot in the stomach while standing outside her home in northwest Albuquerque.
