LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A Saturday night shooting at a bar in Winnemucca left a woman dead and her husband on the run and facing a murder charge, according to the Winnemucca Police Department. He is considered armed and dangerous.
Ty Victor Albisu, 47, is the subject of a search after 61-year-old Linda Walker Albisu was shot and killed at Raven’s Bar in the small town located about seven hours north of Las Vegas in Humboldt County.
Winnemucca police responded to a report of shots fired at the bar just before 9 p.m. on Saturday.
