LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Two women and a man are in custody in Las Cruces after a robbery and shooting incident.

Las Cruces police say 18-year-old Cori Runnels and 23-year-old Cayla Blue are being held on suspicion of shooting from a vehicle, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy.

The say 21-year-old Aaron Pritchard is accused of one count of robbery.

Police say Runnels, Blue and Pritchard were at a lounge around 1 a.m. Saturday when they approached a man about settling a $50 debt owed to Blue.

That led to shots being fired out of car window at the man.

The three suspects met the man again at another lounge. Police say the victim was knocked to the ground and kicked by the two women while Pritchard allegedly stole the man’s jewelry.
