Shiprock Man Charged with Assault with a Dangerous Weapon

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of New Mexico

ALBUQUERQUE – Alexander M.M. Uballez, United States Attorney for the District of New Mexico, and Raul Bujanda, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Albuquerque Field Office, announced that Larence Larry Harris Cambridge appeared in federal court on a criminal complaint charging him with assault with a dangerous weapon. Cambridge, 33, of Shiprock, and an enrolled member of the Navajo Nation, will remain in custody pending a detention hearing, which is scheduled for Feb. 6, 2024.

According to the criminal complaint, on Jan. 9, 2024, Investigators from the FBI and Navajo Nation Department of Criminal Investigations (NNDCI) responded to the scene of a shooting which occurred on U.S. Highway 64 in Shiprock, within the exterior boundaries of the Navajo Nation. Investigators learned through witnesses and evidence at the scene that the defendant fired a gun multiple times into an occupied vehicle driving along the same highway. A victim in this vehicle had to receive treatment at multiple medical facilities in relation to her injuries sustained from the shooting.

A criminal complaint is only an allegation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty. If convicted of the current charges, Cambridge faces up to 10 years in prison.

The Farmington Resident Agency of the FBI Albuquerque Field Office investigated this case with assistance from the Navajo Police Department and Department of Criminal Investigations. Assistant U.S. Attorney Mark Probasco is prosecuting the case.
