¡¡¡all these news items in one day!!!

Sunday’s Top Morning Headlines
(from KRQE-NEWS13)

Albuquerque police are looking for the person who shot and killed a woman outside of the TGI Friday’s restaurant. They say he is Ernest Serna, 46, is responsible. He is 5 foot 2 inches tall with hazel eyes. Police say he is armed. He was last seen driving a black 2008 Dodge Ram with the license plate KFX832. It has chrome wheels and no window tint. It was seen speeding away from the scene of the shooting.

Albuquerque police say a 3-year-old boy got ahold of a gun and shot his dad and a pregnant woman. It happened at the America’s Best Value Inn off Menaul in northeast Albuquerque Saturday. A 2-year-old girl was also in the room, but was not hit. The adults are expected to be ok. The children are on a 48-hour custody hold with CYFD. The adults could face felony criminal negligence charges for having a loaded gun near children.
Albuquerque police evacuated the La Quinta near Coors Boulevard and Iliff Avenue because of a pipe bomb. Police found it outside of the building and it took it into the lobby. Officers say the bomb squad was able to detonate that bomb and the case has been turned over to the federal authorities.

Just a couple comments from the peanut gallery here...
  1. Finding a Dodge Ram with chrome wheels and NO window tint should be pretty easy here in NM.
  2. Why did the police, upon finding a bomb outside, bring it INTO the lobby of the building?
