Police in Albuquerque, New Mexico, have arrested a 13-year-old student for fatally shooting a woman who confronted a group of teenagers driving her stolen car.

The incident occurred at around 8.45pm on Monday outside a gas station in central Albuquerque.

Sydney Wilson, 23, tracked down her stolen white Hyundai sedan using the car’s GPS tracking device. She found it parked outside a Smith’s grocery store and gas station and called a friend to inform them that she was going to confront the thieves.

According to the police, several teenagers were found inside the stolen car, drinking bottles of alcohol they had stolen from a local Walgreens.

As Wilson approached the car, the driver, who had struck a black Mustang parked in front of her, attempted to flee but crashed into a curb, causing the car’s airbags to deploy.
