ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Police say a man was injured in a shooting outside a southeast Albuquerque motel on Tuesday night.

Albuquerque police spokesman Daren DeAguero said the shooting occurred at the Super 8 motel near Yale and Gibson, and the victim is expected to survive.

He gave no other details.

Dozens of police vehicles surrounded the motel as crime scene tape strung across the parking lot and officers could be heard making announcements to the south side of the building.

Scattered clothing could be seen around a small pool of blood in front of the main entrance.
