Deavonne Romero

Deavonne Romero, 23, who faces 13 felony charges in a drive-by shooting spree Sept. 30 in southwest Santa Fe, will remain in custody until her trial, a state district judge ruled Wednesday.

Romero was one of three people arrested in connection with the morning shooting in a neighborhood near Capital High School, which damaged several cars and apartment buildings but caused no reported injuries. Elijah Gallegos, 16, was charged with 12 felony counts and is in a San Juan County juvenile detention facility. The third suspect is Romero’s sister, 20-year-old Brianna Romero, who suffered an accidental overdose after she was booked in the Santa Fe County jail.

According to prosecutors’ motion seeking pretrial detention for Deavonne Romero, Brianna Romero remains in an intensive care unit at a local hospital and is unlikely to survive.
