SW Albuquerque – The South Valley of Albuquerque can be a difficult place for people unfamiliar with the area to find certain addresses due to the rural plots and lack of posted addresses on properties in that area. This is exactly what happened to a Door Dash driver who was trying to make a food delivery on Saturday night in the 2600 block of Halcon Place NW. The driver could not find the residence for a customer and became lost.

According to a criminal complaint, the driver tried calling her customer with no answer and when she kept driving up and down an unrelated street lost she was confronted by Christina Cervantes, 42, of Albuquerque. Two other individuals identified as Lawrence Mora, 48, and Jaylene Mora, 18 of Albuquerque then also exited their residence. The delivery driver tried to explain to the group that she was a Door Dash driver and she said that she heard and saw four gunshots directed at her. She then got in the car and drove off but saw four more muzzle flashes apparently directed at her.


Neighbors, the Door Dash driver, and Door Dash corporate called 911 to report to the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office about this felony crime. When BCSO deputies arrived they found the three suspects barricaded in their residence. After a lengthy SWAT standoff, the three finally exited the residence. The younger Mora admitted to confronting the driver and went inside to hear two gun fire shots. Cervantes did not know anything about the situation and the older Mora denied owning any guns and said he knew nothing about what happened

When BCSO obtained a search warrant for the property they found two guns, an airsoft rifle, and several bullet casings on the ground outside the residence.

“Unfortunately, the Door Dash order was never delivered,” said BCSO spokeswoman Deputy Angelina Navarro.

The three suspects were charged with aggravated assault, 4th Degree Felony Conspiracy to Commit Aggravated Assault (Deadly Weapon, )4th Degree Felony, Tampering with Evidence (Highest Crime a Third, Fourth or Indeterminate Degree Felony) and 4th Degree Felony Shooting at or from a Motor Vehicle, and the older Mora had an additional charge of resisting arrest with law enforcement.
