ALBQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say they’ve arrested the seventh and final suspect in the robbery killing of an attendant at an Edgewood gas station along Interstate 40.
The New Mexico State Police says 30-year-old Daniel J. Martinez of Albuquerque was arrested Tuesday in southeast Albuquerque in the Feb. 11 shooting of 62-year-old Michael Pelkey at a Smith’s Fuel Center.
The other six people were arrested Friday and Saturday and authorities say tips from the community helped produce the arrests.
All seven suspects were arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder and other crimes.
