Albuquerque police ID man who shot girlfriend, then himself
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Police have released the name of man who shot his estranged girlfriend before killing himself at a northeast Albuquerque gas station.
They say 61-year-old Wendell Hargrove died at a hospital Saturday.
His 56-year-old estranged girlfriend remains in critical but stable condition.
Albuquerque police were called to the gas station Saturday afternoon for reports that a man and a woman had been shot.
Court records show Hargrove had been with the woman for about 11 years.
He was arrested in September 2005 and charged with several crimes including aggravated battery against a household member and stalking after his ex-wife reported that he broke into her apartment.
Records show Hargrove was sentenced to 18 months in jail.
