ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Police have identified a man found fatally shot at a northeast Albuquerque motel last week. They say the victim was 21-year-old Leroy Garcia. Police say the man's body was discovered last Tuesday at the Motel 76. A suspect in the homicide has yet been identified by police, who say their investigation is continuing. Police say Garcia had a criminal history that included a recent arrest for receiving or transferring a stolen vehicle, felony possession of a controlled substance and possession of burglary tools. They say an arrest warrant for Garcia was filed for failing to show up for a court hearing last month.
