Gunfire and screams erupted in a crowded Smith’s parking lot Saturday afternoon when police say an officer shot a man after a short pursuit. A police spokesman said the suspect later died at a hospital.
Albuquerque Police Department spokesman Gilbert Gallegos said one officer opened fire in the grocery store parking lot, at Yale and Coal SE, after police chased two suspects there from an armed robbery at a Verizon store near Menaul and San Pedro NE. The second suspect was arrested.
