  SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A man has been charged in a fatal shooting at the South Capitol rail station in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Police say 22-year-old Matthew Arellano was arrested near his home Tuesday evening. He is scheduled for an arraignment Wednesday on charges of murder and battery with a firearm.  Police Capt. Anthony Tapia identified the man killed as 24-year-old David Hernandez. The name of a 38-year-old man hospitalized after the shooting has not been released. Tapia says a witness heard an argument at the station over drug prices before shots were fired. The suspect and victims are from Sante Fe.  Court officials say Arellano did not have a lawyer listed for him ahead of the arraignment.
