Brandee Trujillo, 46 of Lunas, New Mexico, is scheduled to be arraigned today in Superior Court on a felony complaint alleging she is a fugitive from New Mexico

January 9, 2020         SHOOTING UPDATE

The Bishop Police Department continues to investigate Monday evening’s attempted
car-jacking and shooting at the Shell Y-Mart at the corner of U.S. Highway 395 and Wye Road.
Charges have not been brought by the District Attorney yet, but we have learned that
Brandee Trujillo, 46 of Lunas, New Mexico, is scheduled to be arraigned today in Superior Court
on a felony complaint alleging she is a fugitive from New Mexico. The extradition complaint
alleges she is charged with a felony crime of escape in Valencia County. Trujillo is being held in
that case, a case that is completely separate from any possible charges arising in Inyo County.

Under the felony murder rule, she could be charged for murder in Inyo County.
