Albuquerque P.D. Reports Fatal Shooting Was Self-Defense

posted on September 3, 2016

Albuquerque, N.M., police report the recent fatal shooting of 42-year-old Tony Fuentes was in self-defense, and they won’t bring charges against the shooter.

Public Information Officer Tanner Tixier told KOB4 the bizarre story of the Fuentes confrontation. According to him, Fuentes was staying at a friend’s house last month, but one evening Fuentes began beating his friend unconscious as he slept. “The beating continued for a lengthy amount of time,” Tixier said. 

Once the victimized homeowner regained consciousness, he reached for his gun and fired a single shot at Fuentes, who then fled the house. The APD found the suspect in the backyard with a fatal gunshot wound. “All evidence thus far indicates the shooting of Tony Fuentes was in self-defense,” Tixier added. The district attorney’s office is currently reviewing the case.
