APD investigates 3 fatal shootings in 12 hours

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque police are investigating three fatal shootings that happened over the course of 12 hours.

Police were first called to the Giant gas station at Menaul and San Mateo around 2:30 p.m. on Saturday  in response to a shots fired call where they found a male and a female with gunshot wounds, Albuquerque Police Department  spokesman Gilbert Gallegos said.

The male did not survive his injuries, but the female is listed in stable, but critical condition, Gallegos said.

This shooting is being investigated as an attempted murder suicide, Gallegos said.

Around 9:20 p.m. police responding to a shots fired call at an apartment complex on the 6000 block of Topke NE, near Montgomery and San Pedro, found one male dead with a gunshot wound, Gallegos said.

Gallegos said police are investigating this shooting as a homicide.

Officer Tanner Tixier said the third fatal shooting, and second homicide investigation in the twelve hours, occurred on the 300 block of Vincent Ct NW, near Olympia and 49th.

Officers initially received calls about a large party before hearing calls about shots fired, Tixier said.

When officers arrived they found a male with a gunshot wound, Tixier said.

“Life saving measures were attempted, but the victim died on scene,” Tixier said.
