Man accused in fatal Albuquerque shooting gets prison term

May 18, 2017

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A man arrested in connection with a deadly New Year's Day 2016 shooting in Albuquerque that was fueled by a game of beer pong has been sentenced to 14 years in prison. Prosecutors say 24-year-old Luis Delgado pleaded no contest to aggravated battery and aggravated burglary in February and was sentenced Wednesday. Nathan Ware, another defendant in the case, pleaded guilty last November to second-degree murder and is serving a 20-year prison sentence. Authorities say Ware fought with two men after a drinking game in which teams throw ping pong balls into beer cups. Ware later returned to the party and shot the two men. Authorities say one victim later died of his injuries. Delgado reportedly was on probation for a domestic violence case at the time of the incident.
