ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Authorities have identified the victims of a double homicide involving a car chase in metro Albuquerque.

The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office said one of the victims was 22-year-old Anthony Vigil and that the other was a 15-year-old boy.

The boy’s name was not released.

Both were found dead with apparent gunshot wounds following a roll-over crash in a dark-colored sedan.
