Police Investigate Santa Fe Shooting Incident That Killed One

The Santa Fe Police are looking into a shooting incident that left a man dead. The Santa Fe shooting incident happened during the early hours of Monday, October 4th. The police said that Joseph Aiello, 39, was shot in the 2700 block of Alamosa Drive. 

The Santa Fe Police Deputy Chief Paul Joye said officers responded to the crime scene around 1:48 a.m. A female witness said she was at the victim’s residence at the time of the shooting. The witness and her friends were in a back room when they heard gunshots. 

When the woman came out, she saw Alieo lying on the floor in a hallway bleeding from a gunshot wound to the head. The witness said everyone in the residence fled while she and her boyfriend called for an ambulance. She informed the police that the victim was a kind man, always willing to help others. 

The police said that the woman later informed them that she and her boyfriend saw the man she believes is the shooter walking around downtown. The SFPD thinks that the victim and the suspect knew each other. The investigators are continuing the investigation into the Santa Fe shooting incident to apprehend the shooter.

About 12 hours later, the Santa Fe police dealt with another shooting near Owl’s Liquor and St. Francis Drive and Hickox Street. The shooting resulted in the closing down of schools and businesses as the police searched for suspects. Officers later apprehended 25-year-old Jay Wagner, but charges were not immediately available. 

When a crime occurs, the perpetrator, if found guilty, faces severe penalties, mostly jail time. The only chance a suspect has of mitigating their punishment is putting up an excellent defense with the help of a New Mexico criminal defense lawyer.
