Police in Albuquerque, New Mexico are saying an armed Good Samaritan may have prevented two murders on Sunday evening.
Police say around 5 p.m on Sunday February 20, a woman was driving her daughter to the airport in their red Ford pickup, then her estranged husband, Qian Ming, 66, intentionally crashed his Chevrolet truck into hers.
According to APD, Ming then got out of his vehicle and fired a couple of rounds into the wife’s truck. His daughter was hit by a bullet in the shoulder.
Police say that’s when a 34-year-old Good Samaritan pulled up. That man told police he originally though it was a crash. He witnessed Ming beating his daughter with a gun in the middle of the street.
That’s when the Good Samaritan, who is not being named at this time because he’s currently not facing any charges, told police Ming pointed the gun in his direction.
Police say the man then fired at least one shot, hitting and killing Ming.
