TAOS, N.M. — A man has been arrested for allegedly shooting and wounding another motorist in Taos over a $400 debt.
Taos County Sheriff’s officials say 54-year-old Paul Trujillo is jailed on $20,000 cash bond on suspicion of shooting at or from a vehicle, assault with intent to commit injury or death and aggravated assault.
It was unclear Friday night if Trujillo has a lawyer yet.
Sheriff’s deputies responded to a shots fired call about 10:30 a.m. Friday and found a luxury car crashed into a fence and a 34-year-old Cerro man with a gunshot wound to his foot.
The gunman fled the scene in a pickup truck and deputies eventually identified the suspect as Trujillo.
Sheriff’s officials say Trujillo’s home was searched and the rifle believed used in the shooting was recovered.
