On the morning of 20 June 2009, Francisco Rene MELGAR-CABRERA and two other masked and armed males entered a Denny’s Restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico, forced the patrons and employees to the ground under threats of violence, and committed a robbery in which money and personal property were taken from restaurant employees. During the course of the robbery, a revolver possessed by one of the perpetrators was fired with the bullet striking a female restaurant employee and subsequently causing her death. During the robbery MELGAR-CABRERA brandished a loaded pistol while he ordered the restaurant employees and the patrons to the ground. MELGAR-CABRERA was illegally in the United States at the time of the robbery and was therefore prohibited from possessing firearms and ammunition. All three perpetrators fled the scene of the crime. Two of the perpetrators were caught shortly afterwards; however, MELGAR-CABRERA eluded capture. USE EXTREME CAUTION: MELGAR-CABRERA should be considered armed and dangerous.
