Albuquerque, NM - On June 8, 2013, William Michael Clark allegedly shot 3 people in a drive-by shooting in the parking lot of the Olive Garden in NE Albuquerque, NM. The shooting occurred shortly after 9pm and was the result of a drug deal gone bad. Albuquerque Police detectives quickly identified the suspect as William Michael Clark. Clark, 24 years old, was charged with Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon (3 counts), and Aggravated Assault with a Deadly weapon (3 counts).

On June 11, 2013, local authorities believed that Clark had fled the city and asked the United States Marshals Service, South West Investigative Fugitive Team (SWIFT) task force for assistance in locating Clark.
