NM police looking for suspects in Denny's killing


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Police in Albuquerque, N.M., are looking for at least two men who they think helped commit yesterday's armed robbery at a packed Denny's Restaurant. One teenage employee was shot and killed.

Two suspects were arrested within minutes of the crime on suspicion of murder, kidnapping and robbery. Authorities have also added charges of child abuse because there were at least five children among the 100 or so people in the restaurant at the time.

Police say the two men who've been arrested are in their late 20s to early 30s and are from South America.

They say at least four masked men with rifles and handguns rushed into the restaurant yesterday morning and demanded money.

Police say the same men may have been involved in 10 other robberies in the Albuquerque area in the past year. No one was shot in those incidents.
