Raymond David Barreras, III was initially charged with murder
On June 26th, 2022, Albuquerque Police investigated two deaths, one scene is located behind the Circle K on 98th/I-40 area. The second scene was on the 1300 block of Secret Valley Dr SW.
APD initial charged Raymond David Barreras, III, with an open count of murder for allegedly murdering his dad. According to a criminal complaint, Barreras III got into a shoot out with his father, Raymond David Barreras, Jr. that killed Barreras, Jr. The complaint goes on to suggest the father had shot Barreras III, mother, who lived at the 1300 block Secret Valley Dr SW home just prior. It is unclear how Raymond Davis Barreras knew this information of his mothers death.
Witnesses told us that over the years Barreras III and his son would work on cars and weld in the driveway of their home. The complaint suggests a recent falling out between the father and son.
