HOBBS, N.M. - An argument between a Hobbs couple escalates into a drive-by shooting.

Police arrested 32-year-old Javier Quinonez.

His girlfriend told officers he came to her house and started arguing with her.

At one point, she claims he turned off the power to the home.

She told officers she later heard a gunshot and apparently her neighbor did too.

The neighbor told police he looked outside and saw Quinonez in his truck.

He says Quinonez stuck his arm out the window and fired two shots.

Police say Quinonez turned himself in later that day.
