Xcel worker shot
story by Arnie Aurellano
A Pampa man was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly shot an Xcel Energy employee who disconnected the power to his home.
According to a release from Pampa Police Department Public Information Officer Stormy McCullar, officers responded to a report of a shooting in the 200 block of West Craven shortly before noon to find the victim, who informed them that he had pulled the power to a house and was headed back to his vehicle. The suspect, 68-year-old Alfonso Albear, had come out of the house to confront him armed with a rifle.
The worker said that Albear ordered him to turn the power back on, which he did. Upon leaving the yard and walking back to the street, however, the worker said that he heard a gunshot and realized that he had been shot in the back.
