Just like the "Blanco Canyon Killing" the FBI will release all the suspects, due to "no wittnesses". The FBI has bigger to fish to fry than messing with drunk indians and petty killings.

Up yours, too.

City jaan can have opinion, but keep it to yourself. Remember, you ran for the hills when going was getting tough, ended up in a city and now you throwing your "poop" at the people. Like a caged monkey at the zoo throwing his "wastes" to get attention.

Thank You for the info. I guess the Daily Times doesn't care enough to give us the rest of the story. The victims family is in our thought & prayers.

MEAN TO SAY BRAIN THOMPSON . MY MISTAKE I JUST GAVE OUT HIS NICKNAME.

THIS IS WHAT THEY SAY!:

The victim was identified as Vinton Wally, 42.

Police said the incident began about 1:17 a.m. on Sept. 4 when Brian Thompson, 20, of Standing Rock, N.M., and Presley Shorty, 21, of Littlewater, drove up to the Wally residence with three other men "wanting to fight the people at the residence" who included Vinton and Nathanial Wally, 24.

Shorty, according to police, approached the residence with a shovel and was confronted by Vinton Wally, who managed to get the shovel away from him. As Shorty was being chased, he yelled at Thompson to shoot.

At that point, according to police, Thompson shot Nathanial Wally in the left side of the chest, the bullet lodging in one of his ribs. Vinton Wally "was then shot in the chest which resulted in death."

Both men were transported to the Crownpoint Hospital by a relative. Vinton Wally was pronounced dead by a physician at the hospital.

Police apprehended Shorty and Thompson, as well as the three other people in the vehicle - Byron Pahe, 20, of Crownpoint, and Kelvin Augustine and Calvie Delgarito, no ages or address given.
