Thursday, March 30, 2023

ALBUQUERQUE – APD detectives tracked down wanted murder suspect, Pedro Larringa-Herrera, on Wednesday and arrested him for the 2022 murder of Daniel Gardner.


Larringa-Herrera, 51, is accused of shooting Gardner on Aug. 15, 2022, in the parking lot of the Pussycat Video, located at 7901 Central Ave., N.E. Gardner, who was not the intended target of the shooting, later died as a result of his injuries on Sept. 9, 2022.


Detectives gathered evidence from Larringa-Herrera’s phone and determined he was in a fight with another man on Aug. 14, 2022, at the Adam Food Market, also known as the In & Out market, which is across the street from the Pussycat Video. The fight escalated and Larringa-Herrera shot the male in the arm.


Two days later, on Aug. 16, 2022, a white Lincoln Navigator turned northbound on Pennsylvania St. from Central Ave., stopping near a group of six people on the east side of the Pussycat Video. The driver, later identified as Larringa-Herrera, appeared to lean over the empty passenger seat of the vehicle and discharge a firearm through the passenger side window, according to APD surveillance video.


Detectives determined Larringa-Herrera intended to shoot the same man he shot two days earlier. Instead, he struck Gardner. APD secured an arrest warrant for Larringa-Herrera in December. Detectives located him Wednesday at a residence located at 1701 Atrisco Dr., S.W.
