ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Police have arrested an 18-year-old man suspected of fatally shooting another man after a fight at a party in Albuquerque.

Police say Esias Madrid was arrested on Monday and charged with murder, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and tampering with evidence.

Madrid is suspected of fatally shooting 18-year-old Arturo Villa after a fight at a party on Camino Bello near Blake on Sunday.

Another man, Jaime Acevez, was also shot at the party. Police say 22-year-old Jack Daniel Trujillo was responsible for that shooting. Acevez was critically injured and police are still looking for Trujillo.

A criminal complaint states that the fight broke out after Acevez and an unidentified man played a drinking game and bet their watches. Acevez lost the game, had to give up his watch and became angry, prompting an argument.
