    Officer Tanner Tixier said Wednesday morning that police believe the assailant was driving a Corolla or Camry with a spoiler on the trunk and dark tinted windows. The car also had a University of New Mexico plate and may contain the digits "200."

    The suspect is described as a white male with a dark complexion, possibly Hispanic, with short, dark hair, possibly in a fade haircut. He has a thin manicured goatee around his mouth, a thin face, soft jaw and average build. He was wearing a black shirt with gold or yellow writing on it.

    The police said a driver pulled up and fired into another car, striking the girl, who was in the back seat with her 7-year-old brother. The girl, identified as Lilly Garcia, later died at a hospital. Her father had picked them up from school, Gordon Eden, the chief of the Albuquerque police, said at a news conference.

    Police said late Wednesday that they arrested Tony Torrez, 32, in the killing, hours after taking him into custody as a "person of interest."

    Albuquerque police spokesman Officer Tanner Tixier said tips helped lead police to a house, and detectives saw a person matching the suspect's description leave in a green car. The car was pulled over in a parking lot without incident, he said.

    Man who shot 4-year-old New Mexico girl Lilly Garcia in road-rage killing was charged in prior attack

    [snipped]

    A man charged in the fatal road-rage shooting of a 4-year-old New Mexico girl was involved in another attack nine years earlier, a new report claims.

    Tony Torrez, 31, who police said confessed to firing into Lilly Garcia's car and shooting her in the head Tuesday, allegedly pulled a gun on another driver in 2006, the Albuquerque Journal reported.

    That incident, reportedly detailed in a complaint obtained by the paper, resulted in three shots being fired by Torrez's gun.
