Prosecutors will pursue a charge of voluntary manslaughter against a man who allegedly shot another last month.
District Attorney Richard Flores said evidence in the case doesn’t warrant his office to proceed with murder charges.
Richard Baca, 21, of Los Lunas is accused of killing Benito Lemos, 22, a local postal carrier, at 12th Street and National Avenue.
The shooting allegedly happened after Lemos got out of his car to confront Baca about cutting him off in another area of town. It happened around 5:30 p.m. Nov. 9.
